Q. What do the results of the Fecal Occult Blood Test mean?
A. A positive FOBT result means that blood was found in your stool. Your doctor will analyze the source of the bleeding by doing a colonoscopy or an examination to determine if the bleeding is coming from the stomach or small intestine.
A negative test result means that no blood was found in the stool sample during the testing period. However, regular screening for colorectal cancer is recommended.
