An Altrincham man diagnosed with a common cancer despite no symptoms appealed to others to get a check-up.
Alan Roebuck felt fine at the time a few years ago, but went to a GP after he saw the late Bill Turnbull discuss the experience of prostate cancer on television.
After a blood test, Alan was shocked to be told he had the common cancer as well, but it was caught so early The Christie was able to treat him for the disease.
Now 75, the father of two and grandfather of two said: “It seemed a bit silly to bother the GP. But I’m glad I listened to my wife, Marilyn, who urged me to ‘just make sure all’s well’ after we heard Bill Turnbull’s experience.
