Glasgow dad given months to live after itchy skin turned out to be cancer fighting to get alternative treatment

A young dad-of-two who has just months to live after being diagnosed with a rare cancer is hoping that an alternative treatment will prolong his life so that he could share more memories with his family.

Yasir Masood received the life-shattering bile duct cancer diagnosis in January, days after visiting his GP with itchy skin on his lower body. Medically known as cholangiocarcinoma, the cancer is more common in people over the age of 65.

The former online businessman, who is no longer able to work, is just 42-years-old and lives in the Shawlands area with wife Yasmine Chaudhry and their daughters Nawaal, six, and 15-year-old Zoya.

People with bile duct cancer may not show any symptoms as it can be a hard disease to spot. Symptoms could include: itchy skin, loss of appetite, feeling tired and jaundice.

A heartbroken Yasmine, 42, told Glasgow Live: “We are devastated. He is a healthy guy who doesn’t drink or smoke. He eats well and looks after his body.

“I have multiple illnesses, I have been ill since I was born and am in and out of hospital all the time. Seeing that and then thinking how does somebody like him get such horrible cancer?
