Weill Cornell Cancer Center

Diagnosis

If a stool blood test shows that there is blood in the stool, the patient may have a colonoscopy to determine the cause.

Small growths found in the colon during colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy can be removed and examined to see if they contain cancer cells.

Doctors can perform additional blood tests and imaging examinations to determine the extent of cancer growth and spread (stage) once a diagnosis of cancer is made.

All of these tests are available at the Weill Cornell Cancer Center.
