Sian Williams shares the story of her secret cancer

It's hard to know what to do with all this stuff that's ricocheting around your head

– Sian Williams

Sian Williams kept her cancer secret for fear of never seeing her children again, 'I just wanted to protect them.'

The television presenter revealed that away from the camera she'd been secretly living with cancer. She started writing to deal with the process and talks about her thoughts at the time, saying 'they are very raw.'

Half of women 'too embarrassed' to talk menopause

In this week's edition of The Pulse, Dr Hilary talks about a new survey which has revealed that half of women in the UK are suffering in silence with menopause symptoms because they are too ashamed to seek medical advice.

The research, conducted by Ipsos MORI on behalf of the British Menopause Society (BMS), found that one in two women surveyed, aged between 45 and 65 who are currently experiencing or who have experienced menopausal symptoms within the past ten years, go through menopause without consulting a healthcare professional for support or advice.

This is despite 80 per cent of women surveyed reporting menopause symptoms and 42 percent saying their symptoms were worse or much worse than expected.

Check Your Chaps raises awareness of prostate cancer

Check Your Chaps is back for a second year, aiming to raise awareness of testicular and prostate cancer - two of the most common cancers in men.

We're encouraging men to check themselves and women to make sure their chaps are checking for signs and symptoms, in order to get us all more clued up and debunk any embarrassment - because early detection really does save lives.

This week we're focusing on prostate cancer, the most common form of male cancer, an awareness drive led by actress Gemma Oaten, whose own father survived the disease.

It was during last year's Check Your Chaps campaign that viewer Roy Forest realised something was wrong after Dr Hilary described the signs of symptoms of prostate cancer.

His wife, Jennie, encouraged him to have a medical check-up and within weeks he was diagnosed.

Shortly after his diagnosis, Roy had keyhole surgery to remove his prostate. As the cancer was caught in its earliest, most curable stages, it had not had a chance to spread.

Matthew Wolfenden talks testicles with Emmerdale cast

How much do you know about testicular cancer?

More than two thirds of the UK male population worry about getting cancer, but worryingly few know the signs and symptoms to look out for.

So today Matthew Wolfenden took our Check Your Chaps campaign to Emmerdale to raise awareness and to see how much they know about the disease.

So, who was on the, ahem, ball and who wasn't? Watch the video to find out!
