Comedian Jason Manford reveals his cancer alert

By Michelle Smyth

Comedian Jason Manford has spoken about his cancer scare and relief after a lump on his testicle turned out to be just a cyst.

The TV comic revealed despite being "embarrassed", he attended an emergency appointment with his doctor after discovering the lump.

He was then given the all-clear after a scan revealed it was a 'varicocele' which is common in people who spend a lot of time standing up.

Manford joked that he had "stand-up comedian's b****ck" and had this advice for his fellow men:

"So come on lads, I've done it and yes, I'm not going to lie to you, I'm a bit embarrassed we are even talking about it.

"Give them a feel... just check for anything that feels a bit weird."
