In brief: Best to see your Dr.

This is done by 4 main methods.
Fecal immunochemical testing that uses antibodies to detect globin, stool guaiac test for fecal occult blood which involves reaction of stool to hydrogen peroxide, fecal porphyrin quantification or hemoquant which measures hemoglobin, and fecal dna test/the pregen-plus which measures dna. It would be wise to check with your doctor and get tested accurately.
