Chris Evans has urged people to go and get themselves checked for colon cancer after having some growths removed in a ''swift'' procedure
Chris Evans has undergone an operation to remove growths in his colon.
The 'One Show' presenter underwent a "procedure" to get rid of the "future little problems" the growths could have caused, and he urged all people to get checked for colon cancer if they have any concerns.
Writing on his BBC blog, he revealed: "So I came in, was taken down and went under. As far as the procedure went, it was lights, camera, action and on we go with the show.
"A couple of pesky potential future little problems were discovered and swiftly removed, but other than that I'm afraid you're stuck with me for a few years longer at least.
"And please, seriously if you or anyone you know may have any worries down below, get them checked out as soon as possible, because this type of enemy is one hundred percent beatable - providing you don't give it chance to fire the first shot."
The TV-and-radio star- whose father died of colon cancer when he was 13 - was so happy to have been given the all clear and the success of his book 'Memoirs of a Fruitcake' he decided to have a "minor celebration".
He wrote on twitter: "Celebrating book position and removal of nasty's earlier on today during colonoscopy. All clear here - minor celebration tonight me thinks. (sic)"
