Screening for Colon Cancer Saves Lives

Music, film and TV star, Will Smith, decided he could no longer delay the inevitable. At age 51, and at the direction of his physician, he underwent his first colonoscopy.

This humorous and informative 17-minute video walks you through his entire colon cancer screening experience, including the surprising results. Turns out, his gastroenterologist found and removed a pre-cancerous polyp in his colon. Had Will Smith either delayed or avoided getting screened, that polyp would have continued to grow and had a high probability of turning into colon cancer.

“What Smith thought would be a funny idea — using the video to crack bathroom jokes and be silly — actually turned out to be crucial for his health.”

Check out his experience.
