British hip-hop star Professor Green has urged male fans to get regular check-ups after a cancer scare this week (ends20Mar11).
The London-born rapper, real name Stephen Manderson, was rushed to a hospital for emergency testing after suffering "swelling and pain" in his groin.
The I Need You Tonight hitmaker was given the all-clear - and now he's urging his devotees to be vigilant about any abnormalities.
In a post on Twitter.com, he writes, "(I) had a testicular scare earlier. Had to have an immediate scan, and give samples... Swelling and pain. Check your balls lads."
