Further Testing

Colon screening affected due to COVID-19 situation in BC. Learn more here.

After you take the fecal immunochemical test (FIT), your results will be sent to you and your doctor. If you have an abnormal result, you will be contacted by the health care team in your community regarding further follow-up. The health care team will assess your condition and book a colonoscopy procedure if appropriate, or let you know if other monitoring or treatment is advised.
An abnormal result does not mean that you have cancer. However, it is very important to attend follow-up tests to determine the reason for the abnormal result. 

For more information on what it means to have an abnormal FIT result, watch the video below.
