Further Testing

​After you take the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT), your results will be sent to your doctor who will arrange all necessary follow-up.

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. 

If you a have an abnormal result your doctor will make recommendations for follow-up testing. Usually colonoscopy is recommended. This is a common procedure that allows a specialist to look at the inside of the colon and rectum to make a diagnosis. For more information on results, click here
