Have you heard about Cologuard, wondering what it is or if it can replace a routine colonoscopy?
Cologuard is a fairly new test designed to detect precancerous cells in the colon and rectum. It is a prescription only test so you must see a doctor to obtain the prescription before you can obtain your test kit.
We already made the colonoscopy process kinder with easier prep and fast acting sedation but some people say they just can’t find the time for their screening.
Never fear – CRS is now offering Saturday appointments for those who can’t take time away from work, or don’t want to take their mother in law shopping!
The early stages of colon cancer have very subtle symptoms. Often it begin with a polyp which can later turn into cancer. Regular colonoscopy screening tests can detect polyps so they can be removed before they become cancerous.
