Edwina's cancer scare can educate others

If it's caught early, if people would actually talk about it...

– Edwina Currie on catching ovarian cancer early

March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month and charity Ovacome have launched a social media campaign called #tellyourdaughter, which sees parents posting selfies with their daughters, promising to tell them about the symptoms.

Edwina Currie is one of the celebrities backing the campaign - she had an ovarian cancer scare in 2001, but fortunately her cyst was benign.

David Emanuel: 'I had no symptoms whatsoever'

Please, please get checked.

– David Emanuel on prostate cancer

As our Check Your Chaps campaign focuses on prostate cancer this week, we're joined by designer David Emanuel who has battled the disease personally.

David first thought about getting checked for prostate cancer when one of his friends, Andrew Lloyd Webber, was diagnosed in 2009 and then was pushed to do so a few years later when his father experienced problems. David's father did not have prostate cancer. However, David knew that problems and complications with the prostate is hereditary and he should get checked just in case.

In the autumn of 2012, David went to see his GP and was referred for more tests and a biopsy, which showed he had cancerous cells in both sides of his prostate gland. David had keyhole surgery to remove his prostate and is now here to tell us about his experience and why all men should be aware of the statistics.

He said. "Tell your boyfriend, or your lover, or your partner, please, please get checked".
