Three-time major winner Padraig Harrington has urged men to seek early treatment after recounting his previous personal cancer scares.

Harrington, whose father Patrick died from cancer, has had treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer - known as “sun spots” - on more than occasion during his career and is keen to raise awareness.

Speaking on Thursday, the 42-year-old told Today FM’s ‘The Last Word’ programme: “I’ve had a number of skin cancers removed off my face. When you get a symptom don’t ignore it. Do something about it.”
