In brief: Follow-up
It is impossible to make a specific recommendation without knowing what test was performed and it's specific finding.
Nevertheless, I am 100% certain that the physician that ordered/performed the screening test has a follow-up plan designed for you. In general, if an abnormality is found by x-ray or occult blood testing, a formal colonoscopy is recommended.
