Finally, we are now offering some patients with bowel symptoms a bowel cancer stool test called a Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT). If your doctor asks you to do the test, it is important you do it before the endoscopy. The result can help us prioritise patients for endoscopy or avoid it altogether in some cases.
