COLONOSCOPY / Making arrangements for screening colonoscopy

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.
