Ever since Will Smith has taken to social media, he has been using the platform to inspire, entertain and now to educate. In a very transparent way, he has shared his life with his fans in ways that remove some of the negative stigmas of social media, making it fun and healthy for all who care to watch.

This time, he is sharing with his base (particularly his male base) the danger of blowing of having an annual colonoscopy.

Dr. Ala Stanford, whose offices are in Miami, set him up for a colonoscopy- a practice that men are encouraged to do around their 50th birthday. During a recent visit to his doctor, Smith was faced with a health surprise (or scare).

In the video, you hear a nurse talking to him when he first wakes up from his anesthesia. She asks him, “how’d you do? You did alright?”

And in his typical likable self, he answers her, “The question is: did you guys do alright?”

They did better than alright. Apparently, according to AOL, Dr. Stanford found pre-cancerous polyp that she removed from his colon.

The particular polyp that was growing within his colon is called a tubular adenoma. Stanford called Smith a few days after the procedure and told him that this is same type of polyp that is found in “95 percent of colon cancers.”
