'You don't need to suffer' from prostate cancer

Actor Cyril Nri has called on men are worried that they might be suffering from prostate cancer to go and get tested.

Recalling his own family's experiences and those in the wider Afro-Carribean community, the actor urged men to go and get checked out because "you don't need to suffer from it".

"Men very rarely talk about illness. I don't like visiting the doctor. Most of my friend's don't like visiting the doctor. We just stay away and think ' Oh it will go away'

"If you have any inkling that you are suffering from this go and get it checked."
