It is intensely used for diagnosing colorectal cancer before the appearance of symptoms. It is also used to help find the cause of anaemia. It can distinguish between irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which usually doesn't cause bleeding, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which is likely to cause bleeding.

It is recommended to undergo FOBT if suspected of bleeding. The screening tests can start at age 45 or 50 if a person has an average risk of developing colorectal cancer.

Avoid Vit C supplements, red meat (beef, lamb, pork), NSAIDs (Aspirin, Ibuprofen) drugs, and spicy food the day before the test, as these can alter results.
