Screening for Colon Cancer in 3 Easy Steps

Testing yourself for colon cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States, is now much easier and more accurate.

Cologuard is a do-it-yourself kit that your doctor can order that allows you to collect your stool sample in the privacy of your home. The best part? No special preparation, diet or medication changes are required.

Once your doctor orders the test, a kit is shipped to your home. You collect a stool sample and mail it to a lab in a prepaid, pre-addressed box. The lab will then send results to your doctor within 2 weeks.
