At the insistence of her family, Jane, 37, from South Wales, consulted a skin specialist who diagnosed it as malignant melanoma, the deadliest of skin cancers.

After a surgery to remove the mole, she got a clean chit from the doctors, since she was lucky the cancer was detected early.

Jane  said: "Ianto is a very special boy and helped me catch my skin cancer early. It began with a small mole on my neck, almost like a freckle, but when I was pregnant it seemed to get bigger. If my son hadn't kept pointing to the freckle I don't think I would have done anything about it."
