More than 11,000 men die from prostate cancer in the UK each year - that's one man every hour. Figures from the charity - Prostate Cancer UK - also reveal that you're more at risk if you are black - with a quarter of black men likely to be diagnosed with it at some point in their lives, compared to 1 in 8 white men. Men over 50 and those with a family history of prostate cancer all face a higher than average risk of the disease. Errol McKellar is a mechanic. He runs a garage here in Hackney in the East End of London. He's had prostate cancer. He took over Afternoon Edition to talk about Prostate Cancer and men's health.
