All this week we've been highlighting the dangers of prostate cancer.
On Friday we heard from a Yorkshire-based expert who's trying to come up with a cure. We also spoke to a cancer survivor who's hopefully on the mend. And to mark Fathers Day, both men took part in a charity fun run in York to raise awareness of the disease.
ITV has been supporting the 'Stand By Your Man' campaign this week, which is designed to raise awareness about prostate cancer.
The disease affects one in eight men. Consultant surgeon, Dr Nkem Umez-Eronini, says the campaign is helping to raise awareness:
Prostate cancer has been under the microscope at the University of York for 25 years.
During that time Professor Maitland and his team have built a clearer picture of the disease. It's resulted in major advances in the understanding of its genetic make-up, how it can be detected and, crucially, how it can be treated.
Professor Maitland says while many men are currently told nothing can be done, he believes there will be a cure in the future.
Scientists in York are leading the world in research into prostate cancer. Professor Norman Maitland hopes advances in understanding the disease will one day provide a cure.
Men, along with their wives and partners, are being encouraged to talk more about their health.
Jonny Blair visited a cancer support group to see what difference opening up can make.

Sir John spoke candidly to ITV News Tyne Tees at his family's estate about how he is coping with life as a cancer patient, the strength he gets from his wife Lady Mae and the importance of an early diagnosis.
