'My only regret is that I let it go unchecked for three months'

Newcastle Falcons centre Johnny Williams discusses his testicular cancer diagnosis for the first time, speaking to Lauren Mahon and Steve Bland on BBC Radio 5 Live's #YouMeBigC podcast.,

"It's one of those things that you never think it's going to be you, but in my case it was," said the 23-year-old.

"Because of my lifestyle, being an athlete, caring about my diet, caring about my health... Yeah, I just never thought I'd get [cancer] really.

"My only regret is that I let it go for three months, because that may have been the difference between having chemotherapy and not."
