Male Cancer Awareness Week

Devon women are being urged to nag their partners, to make sure they are aware of the dangers of cancer.

It's Male Cancer Awareness Week with research showing an alarming lack of knowledge about cancers by men.

1 in 3 say they know about female breast cancer compared to only 1 in 10 who know about testicular cancer.

More research shows 1 in 3 men didn't know they could check themselves for cancerous lumps.

A charity's warned men they are at greater risk of getting prostate cancer if there is a family history of the disease.

Orchid says over half of men are unaware of potential hereditary links.
