Human-occult (invisible) blood in stool can indicate various pathologies in the lower gastrointestinal tract, such as gastric ulcers, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, hemorrhoids, or colorectal carcinoma.
Early detection of human-occulated blood in the faeces makes it possible to diagnose and treat the above-mentioned diseases at an early stage.
