Charley Boorman in cancer scare

Round-the-world adventurer alerted by switched on vet

GLOBAL motorcycle adventurer Charley Boorman has undergone surgery to remove a suspected cancerous testicle - on the recommedation of the local vet.

Just weeks before starting his UK live tour, Boorman's wife took their dog to the vet after noticing the pooch had a swollen testicle. Boorman's wife made a joke that it looked like Charley's, so the vet said he should get it check out immediately.

Bizarre but true.

"I was lucky. Blokes really do need to check themselves," said Charlie. "All the information is available at"

Charley's UK tour doesn't include any dates at the Albert Hall.
