Hello, my father is 67 years old and he is having some serious intestinal problems. He is constantly suffering from both constipation and diarrhea, following each other without any pauses. Doctor said that he should do a fecal blood test? What kind of test is that? He is not having any blood in his stool, which should be a good thing, right?

Well, it is but you should know that sometimes, blood in the stool cannot be seen with an eye, a microscope has to be used. That is the function of the fecal occult blood test. And if there is some bleeding, that unfortunately, can be a sign of some serious issues, most probably with the colon. But first, let’s see what the results will say.
