What happens if I have tested negative for blood in my stool, does it mean I cannot have colon cancer?

In brief: No true correlation

Stool guaiac to define blood in stool of little value since many tumors do not bleed especially those on the rt.
side where bowel content is mostly liquid and will not extract blood from a tumor. In addition internal hemorrhoids can bleed and as such no correlation to malignancy. Colonoscopy every 5 yrs looking for bowel lesions is the most effective screening test at the present time.
