Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier undergoes a colonoscopy for the first time on Friday’s episode of The doctors. The procedure was performed by the colorectal surgeon Dr. Zuri Murrell.
“Let me be honest, I’ve been up all night so I’m really excited. There’s no real concern. I’m ready to go,” says Frazier in the preview clip, while at home before his colonoscopy.
Once inside the doctor’s office, Frazier gets helpful information about the benefits of a colonoscopy.
“All colon cancer begins as these small growths called polyps,” relates a medical professional. “And during a colonoscopy, they can actually be removed before they turn into cancer.”
Following the tragic death of good friend Chadwick Boseman, Frazier knew the importance of prioritizing health. From preparation to procedure, his entire screening was recorded and will be broadcast during the special, along with his results. Check your local listings for The doctors.
“I am very grateful to Dr. Ian for the gentle push to do something that he should have done 10 years ago,” says Frazier. “In many ways, they are helping save my life.”
