When Ashley Mellon fell off his bike on the way to work, it didn’t just result in cuts and bruises, but an early cancer diagnosis that saved his life. Weeks earlier, Mr Mellon, 26, had discovered a lump in his body but was told it was nothing to worry about. However, after his cycling accident, further tests found that he did in fact have cancer.
Catching the disease early meant he could be treated before it was too late, and soon after his chemotherapy course was completed, Mr Mellon’s partner Sophie Pinner, 23, became pregnant. “It was such an amazing moment when Alfie was born,” Mr Mellon, an IT administrator from Manchester, said.  “I feel so lucky to be a dad to him after everything that we have been through. I didn’t know if it was even going to be possible after all the treatment. ”
Mr Mellon first went to see a doctor in January 2016 after discovering the lump. “I was worried because I was aware of this cancer in young men and the need to check yourself regularly,” he said. “I went to the doctor who examined me and said it was nothing to worry about. It was still there and didn’t go away, but because the doctor had looked at it, I tried not to be too concerned.” 
Four months later, Mr Mellon was on his ten-mile ride to work when his bike slipped on mud and he fell off. He suffered cuts to his arms and legs, which became infected, causing Mr Mellon to go to the hospital. As doctors examined his injuries, he mentioned the lump and asked them for a second opinion. He was then diagnosed with the cancer. The tumour was removed and he completed chemotherapy in February 2017.
