About faecal occult blood (FOB)
The normal physiological bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract is low in healthy persons. The faecal haemoglobin varies with gender and age, being higher for males than females and increasing by age for both genders.
Occult gastrointestinal bleeding is defined as bleeding which is unknown to the patient. Occult bleeding itself is not a disease, but it might be a symptom of various conditions.
Significant amounts of blood can be hidden in faeces. Faecal occult blood tests provide information on excessive bleeding and mandate further investigations of the gastrointestinal tract, starting typically with the colon.
