Chaps' Check Chat

Radio Clatterbridge has been highlighting the importance of men checking themselves for signs of cancer.

Ian Grant has been talking about the issue on the Coffee Club as part of Orchid Male Cancer Awareness Month.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of testicular, prostate and penile cancer through a range of events and activities, including a video which is going viral on the internet.

Fathers and Sons, starring Hunger Games star Alexander Ludwig, is a humorous take on a serious message.

It shows a father making numerous attempts to bring up the awkward subject of testicular cancer with his sons.

Ian also spoke about a campaign which encourages partners to 'check their chaps' for the signs and symptoms of testicular cancer.

It's hoped the issues will be explored further when we welcome a special guest from the charity later in the year.
