22% Of Scots 'Avoid Health Talks With Dad'
More than a fifth of people in Scotland would avoid talking to their father about an intimate health issue such as prostate cancer despite it being potentially life-saving, according to a new poll.
The disease is the most common cancer in men and claims 10,900 lives annually in the UK, but can be treated successfully if caught early.
A UK-wide survey of 2,054 people by YouGov for charity Prostate Cancer UK found 22% of Scottish respondents would dodge having a heart-to-heart with their fathers about prostate cancer or similar conditions.

"This year I'm urging everyone to have a three-minute conversation with their dad about prostate cancer to ensure he's there for many more years to come.''
