I normally have a once a year "smear" test but have recently been out of the US for 2 years. This year a new doctor signed me up for Cologuard and I proceeded. I did not read any reviews prior to the test. Results came back positive with resulting anxiety on my part. The doctor immediately recommended a colonoscopy. I asked if I could take the traditional 3-day FIT smear test. The doctor ordered one up from Labcorp that I had to pick up and return. It was a tube-type test which maybe could have been one day but I had asked for 3 days and unlike the other "smear" test, 3 results came back versus the traditional one result? Whatever, they were all within normal limits. Thus I would investigate all of my options and somewhat initially relax if you do Cologuard and have a positive result.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
