Fecal Occult Blood Test

The fecal occult blood test (FOBT) is a diagnostic test to assess for occult blood in the stool. This test has commonly been used for colorectal cancer screening, especially in developed nations. Colon cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers in both men and women worldwide, therefore, early detection is imperative. When used correctly for screening, this testing modality has established associations with decreased morbidity and mortality. Newer screening methods, including the fecal immunochemical test (FIT), have been developed. FIT uses antibodies to discern blood in the stool. These newer modalities have replaced the FOBT for colon cancer screening due to increased specificity, sensitivity, and decreased costs.

A fecal occult blood test (FOBT) looks at a sample of your stool (poop) to check for blood. Occult blood means that you can’t see it with the naked eye. And fecal means that it is in your stool.
The most common indications for fecal occult blood tests are anemia, concern for gastrointestinal bleeding, and colon cancer screening. It can also be used to help discriminate irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which is likely to yield a positive test result.
The test isn’t always accurate. Your fecal occult blood test could show a negative test result when cancer is present (false-negative result) if your cancer or polyps don’t bleed.
