Swizz Beatz Encourages Men To Get An Colonoscopy

Swizz Beatz has gotten a colonoscopy, a procedure that many men fear.

The 39-year-old father of 5, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, posted an Instagram.com image of himself lying on a hospital gurney after undergoing a colonoscopy.

He told his Instagram followers he fulfilled a promise he made to a friend who died of colon cancer.

Swizz captioned the photo in part:

“Today I did a Colonoscopy, which many men refuse to do until it’s too late. It only took 2days for the entire process and thank God I’m okay. I wasn’t going to share this but I promised my brother I would spread the word to prevent others from going through what he did Blessings to all. Your health is your wealth… F@ck Cancer….”

Swizz also mentioned the test took 2 days, including drinking a laxative Prep the day before to clean out the bowel. The actual colonoscopy exam takes an hour to 2 hours.

Doctors recommend getting your first colonoscopy exam beginning at age 50 and continuing until age 75. Black people should begin cancer screening earlier at age 45.
