  • When will I get my screening results?
    It typically takes under 2 weeks from the date you ship back your Cologuard kit to get your result. We’ll send them to your healthcare provider too so you can discuss your result with them.
  • What does a positive result mean?
    A positive result means the test detected altered DNA and/or blood that could be caused by a precancerous polyp or colon cancer. Talk to your healthcare provider about getting a colonoscopy, and any other next steps.
  • What does a negative result mean?
    A negative result means the test did not detect altered DNA and/or blood that could be caused by a precancerous polyp or colon cancer. We send your result to your provider regardless and recommend following up with them.
