Full report: The story of two prostate cancer survivors

Prostate cancer kills one man every hour. It's known as the silent killer because by the time the symptoms are detected it's often too late. In the lead up to Father's Day this Sunday, ITV is working with the charity Prostate Cancer UK to highlight the issue.

The campaign called Stand by Your Man is encouraging women to urge the men in their life to get checked out. Richard Payne has the story of two patients who suffered but survived what's becoming a growing danger to men's health.
