Fecal Occult Blood Test

This is a simple test you can do at home that checks for hidden (occult) blood in the stool.

Place a small amount of your stool on test cards. Then return the cards to your doctor's office or a lab, where the stool samples are tested for hidden blood.

Some experts recommend using a combination of Fecal Occult Blood Test and Flexible Sigmoidoscopy tests to maximize your chances of detecting polyps and cancer.
