About occult blood test

Why is the occult blood test done?

An occult blood test is done to check for colorectal cancer or any infection in the digestive tract. The blood stains in the stool might not be visible to the naked eye and can only be seen using a microscope. The bleeding is abnormal and requires medical intervention. Regular screening is recommended for everyone above 50 years of age.

What does the occult blood test measure?

The occult blood test detects the presence of blood in the stools. There are two outcomes of the occult blood test:

Two types of occult blood tests are available. You will be advised to go for one depending on your symptoms.

  1. Guaiac-based test: In this test, you are required to collect three stool samples. A test card of the guaiac plant is placed on the stool sample and any changes in the color of the card are noticed. If it happens, the presence of blood in the stool is indicated.
  2. Fecal immunochemical Test (F.I.T): An antibody protein is used in this test. The stool sample should be collected in a sterile container and should not get mixed with urine or other fluids. A laboratory will examine the sample.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
