colonoscopy and endoscopy are very safe.

there may be a complication only in 1 in 2000 cases or so.

cologuard is good test. about 60-70% accurate to be able to detect colon cancer.

but if the test is abnormal, you still need a colonoscopy.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
