Thank you for your question.
Has he had a colonoscopy before? At what age and what were the results?
Thank you for your reply.
In that case, your concerns are justified and a colonoscopy needs to be done as soon as possible to detect the cause for the bleeding. Just relying on the result of stool blood test is not sufficient. Also when your partner has seen the blood a number of times now there was no need for the blood testing and he should have been taken up for colonoscopy examination immediately. Blood in the stool may be due to many causes and not necessarily due to cancer. However the cause has to be determined.
