There are a number of reliable screening options available to meet your patients’ needs and budgets. Each screening method is effective if done correctly and at recommended intervals, and new research shows that offering patients a choice of screening options increases their likelihood of being screened.

NOTE: Collecting sample during an in-office digital rectal exam (DRE) is strongly discouraged. DREs miss 95 percent of cases of advanced neoplasia, giving patients a false sense of reassurance. They can also produce a false positive result due to hemorrhoids or anal fissures. A stool sample collected at home is optimal for testing purposes.
