Q. Does a positive Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) result mean I have cancer?
A. A positive Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) only indicates that blood was detected in the samples. This could be from conditions other than colorectal cancer. If you have a positive result, it is best to discuss with your physician and establish the source of the bleeding. This will help determine if treatment is required. A further test of the colon and rectum is recommended, such as a colonoscopy.
