Description

During a colonoscopy, a small flexible tube with a camera at the tip is inserted into the rectum to detect abnormalities in the large intestine and rectum. Patients are sedated for this procedure. Cologuard is a non-invasive at-home test that screens for colon cancer through a stool sample.

Men and women at average risk should begin screening at age 45 and continue every 10 years. Those at an increased risk may begin screening sooner and continue with more frequency.
