Your stool samples have been analysed in our laboratory. Since the test results of laboratory analysis for faecal occult blood in your stool were positive, you need an examination of your large intestine. The most suitable examination is a colonoscopy.
A positive result means that the analysis showed blood in your stool samples. This doesn’t necessarily mean you have colorectal cancer. The majority of people with a positive result don’t have cancer. The result merely means that there may be certain changes going on in your colon, which have caused the bleeding and therefore need to be examined in detail. To determine the cause, we must examine your large intestine. The most suitable test for this is a colonoscopy.
Your general practitioner has been informed about the results. Please make an appointment with your doctor no later than within one week after receiving laboratory test results.
As part of the Svit Programme, the Center Svit will organize your colonoscopy procedure in close cooperation with you and your general practitioner.
Please call us immediately after your doctor’s appointment – you can ask the nurse to call us on 01/620 45 21, or you can call us on the same number from Monday to Friday between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM. You can write us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a fax to 01 620 45 29. We will arrange the time and place for the colonoscopy that fits in with your schedule. We will send you a notice by post with the exact date and time of the colonoscopy and the address of the clinic where you will undergo the examination. You will undergo the colonoscopy in one of the authorised centres across Slovenia.
Please call even if your general practitioner determines that your health condition is not suitable for the colonoscopy at this time.
