Well it certainly isn't i any way shape or form dangerous! Cancerous - where the heck do you get that from! Super photo, moth was probably already in the room when you arrived.

totally harmless. so panic not.

I no way is that moth dangerous. It can do no harm.

Cancerous? What gave you that idea?

I reckon it's the Privet Hawk Moth. Beautiful specimen & photo. Have saved this pic, if that is ok.

The pink spotted one is not native to the UK in any case.
