While a colonoscopy is the best way to find and treat colon cancer or emerging signs of the condition, many people have fallen behind on getting their screenings this year.
An at-home colon cancer test is less precise, but can catch a high percentage of colon cancer cases. The Cologuard test is available by prescription from health care providers at Norton Prompt Care at Walgreens clinics.
With eight clinic locations and extended hours, a colon cancer screening is easy and close by.
