Sample Report

Cologuard test results are reported in a clear, easy-to-read format.

Interpreting the Results

A positive* result does not necessarily mean your patient has cancer. It means that Cologuard detected DNA and/or hemoglobin biomarkers in the stool which are associated with CRC or advanced adenoma. Positive Cologuard results should be followed with diagnostic colonoscopy

False positives and false negatives occur with Cologuard and appropriate follow-up is important. Patients with a positive result should have a diagnostic colonoscopy. Patients with a negative diagnostic colonoscopy following a positive Cologuard result do not require additional clinical evaluation

A negative* result means that Cologuard did not detect significant levels of DNA and/or hemoglobin biomarkers in the stool which are associated with CRC or advanced adenoma.

False positives and false negatives occur with Cologuard and appropriate follow-up is important. Patients with a negative result should continue in a screening program appropriate for the patient. Cologuard is recommended by the American Cancer Society every 3 years.**

*If a result cannot be obtained due to insufficient sample size, low DNA capture, etc., the lab will automatically request a second sample, at no additional cost to the patient
