Hi all just joined as I received my results from my Bowel Cancer test it came back positive for blood so worried what is the next step. Just about had enough in 2010 was DX with prostate cancer underwent 6.5 hour surgery to remove prostate have been so worried about this now I have this to worry about.Sometimes I feel it is to much to cope with my question is what is my next step regarding the positive test.Any advice would be most grateful very confused as what to do and expect.
Hi Tony ,
The usual progression is to have a colonoscopy. It involves a good clean out and a flexible camera inspection of your large bowel. The scope has tools and any polyps or suspicious areas can be biopsied.Good luck with the tests ,hope it's all benign or early stages. Ron.
