I received a positive on one of my hemoccult slides. I had a colonoscopy and nothing was found. Now I am scheduled to do the pill cam thing for the small intestine. Since I tested positive on one of the slides, what could I be looking at here and is it certain that something is going on or is there a good chance since the colonoscopy was clear that I had a false positive? What are the statistics on this? Thanks,
