My doctor recommended the test, as I did not want a colonoscopy. I wish she had shared with me that the colonoscopy is the gold standard, and this test is well known for false positives, prior to ordering Cologuard for me. I am 72 years old and my test was positive. Had a colonoscopy. I do not have colon cancer. A lot of anxiety was created by the test. I do not recommend, and say suck it up and get a colonoscopy. The procedure is nothing and the prep is not fun but manageable. I think even more frightening is the fact that the test also is known for false negatives.
Also, I did not like the unprofessional letter written to “Dear Cologuard Patient”, stating results have been delivered to the physician. I paid for the test, I am an adult, share results with me and my physician. They do this because they cannot defend their results.
Pros and Cons:
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
