Beginning at age 45, both men and women should be counseled by their doctors to follow one of these testing schedules:
*If the test is positive, a colonoscopy should be done.
**The multiple stool take-home test should be used. One test performed by the doctor in the office is not enough. A colonoscopy should be performed if the test is positive.
The tests are designed to find polyps and detect early cancer. Talk to a doctor about which test is best for you. Some people should be screened using a different schedule because of their personal history or family history.
