I have a close friend that tested positive for the cologuard test. She does not like doctors and was to scared to go for a colonoscopy. Her GP finally got her to take the Cologuard test, which came back positive. Now she is in a panic and is scheduled for a colonoscopy on July 2nd. The doctor said that just because it came back positive, it does not mean that she has cancer. Cologuard is suppose to have a 92% accurancy rate? Do any of you know of people that took the Cologuard test, which came back positive and the outcome? You would think that after what I went through, she would have run for a colonoscopy 4 years ago!
Any information would be appreciated....
