Q. If a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) test is positive, should it be repeated to confirm the result?

A. A positive or abnormal FIT result indicates that there was blood in your stool at the time of the test. However, the presence of blood can be from causes other than cancer. Your doctor will advise you on what further tests need to be done to determine the source of your issue. Positive results are usually followed by a colonoscopy.
