A brand new blood test which can replace potentially colonoscopy:

I went through screening in 2006 and scheduled a new colonoscopy in April. I am going to ask for this new test too.

Sounds good.  It might still be a good idea to have a colonoscopy to have all detected polyps removed.

Yes DDye, i guess you might go for the colonoscopy every 5-10 years depending on your risk and use the blood test every couple of years. Based on the availability in the US with LabCorp etc.. I would check if LEF could include this test too.

There is available a home test kit. While not a substitute for a colonoscopy,  it could be used annually for example in between an exam every few years.  I've purchaed the kit but have yet to use it.
