Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. It is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in both genders in Poland. Screening tests allow for early cancer detection, resulting in reduced mortality and better prognosis. Tests include a stool test for occult blood, checking for biomarkers in faeces, and stool DNA testing. Colonoscopy remains the gold standard in the diagnosis of cancer, both in Poland and around the world. To convince patients of the importance of such testing, it is necessary to have a wider knowledge of all the available diagnostic tests, to understand their advantages and disadvantages. This article will give descriptions of the respective tests and compare their effectiveness in the diagnosis of colorectal cancer.
