Science for Living: Colonoscopies remain the best way to detect and prevent colorectal cancer, says Justin Maykel

Despite newer options available to detect the presence of colorectal cancer, including non-invasive stool tests that detect blood and, in some tests such as Cologuard, cancer-related DNA cell changes, colonoscopy remains the gold standard, according to Justin Maykel, MD. “It has been shown to prevent colorectal cancer,” said Dr. Maykel, the Joseph M. Streeter and …
