Researchers have found that pushing reluctant husbands to get a routine check up may increase their cancer survival rates as signs are spotted early.

40 percent of people polled for Cancer Research UK and Tesco said that talking to a friend or relative about worrying change to their body led them to make an appointment with a doctor, the Daily Express reported.

Of these, men were most likely to be given a push to see the doctor by their wives (72 percent) while 58 percent of women said the same. (ANI)
