The literature on faecal occult blood (FOB) testing reveals a vast amount of research determining the efficacy of this test for the early detection of colorectal cancer. However, it offers no details of the information that patients require before undertaking it. The test detects the presence of blood in a patient's faeces that may not be visible on examination.
