Former policeman on how his family urged him to get tested for prostate cancer - and saved his life

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, but many are reluctant to seek help. ITV and Prostate Cancer UK are aiming to change that with a new campaign called Stand By Your Man.

The awareness campaign is encouraging men and their partners to spot the signs and to seek prompt treatment. Tom Savvides reports on how raising awareness can save lives.

The report is followed by an interview with Meg Burgess, a nurse from Prostate Cancer UK.
