Cologuard is intended to screen adults 45 years of age and older who are at average risk for colorectal cancer by detecting certain DNA markers and blood in the stool. Do not use if you have had adenomas, have inflammatory bowel disease and certain hereditary syndromes, or a personal or family history of colorectal cancer. Cologuard is not a replacement...

Full Description

The Cologuard test result should be interpreted with caution. A positive test result does not confirm the presence of cancer. Patients with a positive test result should be referred for diagnostic colonoscopy. A negative test result does not confirm the absence of cancer. Patients with a negative test result should discuss with their doctor when they need to be tested again. False positives and false negative results can occur. In a clinical study, 13% of people without cancer received a positive result (false positive) and 8% of people with cancer received a negative result (false negative). Rx only.

It may not be right for you if:

  • You have a personal history of colon cancer, adenomas or other related cancers
  • You have a family history of colon cancer (one or more first-degree relatives diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer before the age of 60, or two or more first-degree relatives diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer of any age)
  • You have had a positive result from another screening method in the last six months
  • You have been diagnosed with a condition that places you at high risk for colon cancer. These include but are not limited to: inflammatory bowel disease, chronic ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, familial adenomatous polyposis
  • You have been diagnosed with a relevant cancer syndrome passed on from your family, such as hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer syndrome, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, MYH-associated polyposis, Gardner’s syndrome, Turcot’s (or Crail’s) syndrome, Cowden’s syndrome, juvenile polyposis, Cronkhite-Canada syndrome, neurofibromatosis, or familial hyperplastic polyposis

Results should be interpreted with caution for individuals over age 75, as the rate of false positives increases with age.
