Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. among men and women combined, and an estimated 147,950 adults are expected to be diagnosed in 2020. Colorectal cancer screening can save lives, but only if people get tested. It is estimated that 1.7 million colonoscopies and biopsies were missed from March to April of 2020 due to the pandemic. During a time when availability of elective screening colonoscopy may be limited by the COVID-19 pandemic, colorectal cancer screening can be safely offered through at-home stool-based tests. Importantly, a positive (abnormal) stool-based test must be referred promptly for colonoscopy to complete the screening process.
