Thread: Fecal Occult test positive

    Fecal Occult test positive

    Hi all. I was wondering who here has gotten a fecal Occult Test that came back positive? What were the next steps you did afterwards? I had my Test come back positive for microscopic blood traces. Also have been diagnosed with internal hemroids. Had a colonoscopy 2 years ago. They found one polyp and removed it. It was tested to be non cancerous. Can my blood in stool sample be colon cancer that fast from last colonoscopy 2 years ago? Thank you for your time and replies. Have a great day.

    After my positive test the next step was a colonoscopy where they removed 3 polyps none cancerous.
    I have to have another one 5 yrs after the last one.
    Have they booked another one for you?
    From what you've said it's probably just your piles.

    Thanks for the reply. So your positive test was from polyps? I have an appointment Friday to go over results from fecal test. I'm sure he will order a colonoscopy. Hopefully it's just the piles acting up on me. That can cause a positive in that test? The piles?

    If they're bleeding they will for sure.

    Im sure the bleeding is from your piles. If you had a colonoscopy 2 years ago it cannot be anything too sinister. You are being checked out but you really needn’t worry.

    Hi thanks for the reply. Yeah I had a colonoscopy 2 years ago, one polyp removed, non cancerous. My ha just has me going because they found blood in my stool sample. I talk to Dr Friday to discuss next steps. I'm 45 yo male. Hopefully it's just piles.
