The test is often used to:

  2. Screen for colon cancer by checking for hidden (occult) blood.
  3. Certain enzymes (such as trypsin or elastase) may be evaluated in the stool to see the pancreas functionality.
  4. Finding the cause of an infection, such as bacteria, a fungus, or a virus even for parasites, such as pinworms or Giardia.
  5. Check for poor absorption of nutrients by the digestive tract (mal-absorption syndrome).
