Lampanelli, 51, turned to the surgery, which decreases the size of a patient's stomach to limit the amount of food she can eat.

Dr. Mehmet Oz is still coming to terms with the frightening results of a routine colonoscopy, and he's sharing the experience with his audience.

During The Dr. Oz Show on Tuesday, he showed a video clip of the day gastroenterologist, Dr. Jon LaPook, a CBS Evening News correspondent, told him a polyp was precancerous, and if left untreated, could have become colon cancer.

"I was shocked!" Oz, 50, says. "If even I, someone who has no risk factors or family history, and who eats healthy and exercises, could have an adenomatous polyp, it could happen to anyone."

Dr. Mehmet Oz and Oprah Winfrey share a tight bond. Not only did she coin his nickname of "America's Doctor," but she also produces his popular daytime talk show, The Dr. Oz Show.

So when the handsome author and TV host, 50, received the potentially devastating diagnosis that he had an adenomatous polyp, a precancerous growth in his colon that will require him to undergo frequent screenings for colon cancer, he turned to his friend for words of encouragement.

"I talked to Oprah about this right after the colonoscopy results came back," Oz tells PEOPLE. "Her main question, classic Oprah, was, 'I don't care about this stuff. Are you okay? That's the bigger question.' It's all about how do you deal with the rough waters you hit?" he says. "This was a storm that came over the horizon."

Dr. Mehmet Oz has always been outspoken about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. So when the TV host, who boasts that he "always" takes his own advice, went in for a routine colonoscopy after his 50th birthday this year, he never imagined he'd have anything to worry about.

But during the examination, his doctor found an adenomatous polyp, or precancerous growth, inside his intestine, which if left behind, could have likely become colon cancer.

"This was a shakeup for me," Oz tells PEOPLE. "I have done everything right. I don't have any family history, and yet I'm high risk now."

He's a successful talk show host, gives Oprah Winfrey health advice – and is an accomplished home chef.

"I love to help my wife cook," Dr. Mehmet Oz tells PEOPLE. "I'm pretty competent with the grill. My wife [doesn't eat red meat], so I have become competent in the fish and poultry departments."

As a wellness guru, Oz says that preparing food at home doesn't just help "save lots of money," but it also has plenty of health benefits. "You know exactly what you are putting in your meals rather than trusting someone you don't know to limit salt, sugar and fat," he says.

One dish that fulfills the doctor's healthy and delicious criteria is his spicy chili, which he prepares with turkey or ground meat substitute to cater to vegetarians.
