My dad has been diagnosed with skin cancer. He has pink itchy scaly discoloration especially on his back. Recently he developed some growths on his head and neck, the doctors removed them but they are back. They are like boils with bloody discharge that never dries up. My dad is 83.


Cancer is the result of the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells anywhere in the body. See Answer
