A 24-year-old UK man has been told he has just months to live after being diagnosed with skin cancer. Andy Prowting, from Havant, Hampshire, noticed a mole on his back five months after a summer holiday in Turkey, where he said he got sunburn.

Prowting said that he first saw the mole last January. He believes it came after he was sunburnt. "I was in Turkey last July and even though I was applying sunscreen every hour, I got burnt. In January I felt something on my back and got my mum to check. There was a mole and we kept checking it and noticed it was growing a lot and I went to see my doctor," he added.

Prowting is now trying to raise money for treatment in America, which could save his life. "Without treatment I have got about nine months to live, which is scary and upsetting," he said.

He needs Ģ60,000 for a trip to the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas, where he can get treatment to stop the disease from growing. His family has set up a fundraising facebook page and raised around Ģ12,000.
