I just learned my father has bad skin cancer. He refuses to see a doctor (threatened to shoot me if I tried to take him there), but I fear for him. I want to know what stage cancer he has.. do you think if his tumors are this size, I can infer anything about how far it has spread or what stage he is in? His tumors are roughly the size and appearance of the one in the picture, except he has two on the side of his face, around his temple area. One is close to his ear and may now be part of it, but didn't originate from his ear for what that's worth (I've heard that's a risk factor).

Call him a pussy for not going to the doctor

Disregarding the exaggeration that your father said he'd shoot you for doing him a favor...talk to him and convince he needs to see a doctor or he will die. Ask if that's what he wants. If no, take him to the hospital. If yes...he's your father. And your problem. Not ours.

>just learned

how did you not notice that he has huge, disgusting tumors like that on his face? those don't just pop up overnight

anyway if he doesn't go you can't really do anything about it. he's retarded if he'd rather suffer and die than go to a hospital. if he passes out or can't move/talk then you can call an ambulance, they'll take him

If the Cancer's in his face I don't think there's much that can be done surely

depends on the kind of tumor he has got, and if he has other symptoms like excessive sweating at night, lost weight extremely fast etc.

if he is psychologically unstable you could always get a doctor who knows him to write down that he shows selfharming behaviour and that he needs to go to a hospital right now and the police and ambulance will pick him up. But you will probably get disowned for soemthign like that.

Thats not cancer

If it's that big it's stage IV in size. But there are other measurements, such as whether or not it has spread to lymph nodes and other tissues/organs. Those you can't tell by size alone but generally speaking when you have a IV in size you are probably II+ in the others.

Tell him he's a coward and an idiot and that if he doesn't want to take care of his own health than you (or your family) won't care when he'll be on his death bed.
