LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)—There is a clean bill of health for WHAS11’s Political Editor Joe Arnold after undergoing a colonoscopy that was live tweeted.
Arnold told his sister, Maria Jung, who died from colorectal cancer last year, that he would do everything he could to spread the word, which is the second leading cause of death in Kentucky.
Colon cancer is preventable with the procedure. Arnold wanted to show everyone how easy it is to get checked.
No polyps were detected during Arnold’s exam.
If caught early, they can be removed before they turn into cancer.
Here are some of the tweets during his procedure. Check out @Norton_Health for the full coverage of Joe's procedure.
