What is Cologuard Testing?
Cologuard Testing is a non-invasive colon cancer-screening test based on the latest advances in stool DNA. It is approved by the FDA and is covered by Medicare and by many other health insurances. It is normally used by men and women 50 to 85 years of age who are at an average risk for colon cancer. It is not indicated for those who are at a higher risk for colon cancer, including those with a history of inflammatory bowel disease, a known personal and/or family history of colon cancer or precancerous polyps, or patients diagnosed with an inherited colon cancer syndrome.
