The actor took to Instagram to share the news with his fans, who commended him for keeping his health in check and making sure nothing alarming is going on.

Ever the comedian, he sure knows how to make light of even a less than pleasant situation, posting a selfie to reveal he was at the doctor ahead of his upcoming colonoscopy, a procedure the average adult dreads when the time comes.

The hilarious selfie sees the Scream Queens star looking not quite ready to face the colonoscopy, furrowing his brows to make a frowning gesture, and wearing an orange beanie and a face mask.

He angled the camera towards the wall behind him, which featured the items that were making him dubious of the whole process: a slew of medical tools, including thermometers, measuring gadgets, and tubes.

The 45-year-old captioned the candid picture with: "The perfect day for a pre colonoscopy appointment!!" showing a little more excitement about the procedure than his face was giving away.

Fans were quick to root for him in the comments, and spread awareness about the appointments many put off but that can save a life, writing: "Prep is the worst part, you got this bro," and: "Here's to HEALTH! Raising my coffee mug to click with your prep drink," as well as: "In and out before ya know it! Thank you for posting!"

Fans know just how close Oliver and Kate, plus the rest of the family, are

Oliver proved just how little of a procrastinator, and how on top of his health game he is, considering he turned 45 late last year, which is the age health officials recommend that adults begin getting colonoscopies.

Though he didn't go as far as to say when his procedure would be, longtime fans know his candid nature, and that an update making light of the unpleasant process is bound to be posted soon.
