Is this skin cancer?

My Dad (who is 70 years old) showed me last night that he has a red "sore" on the right side of his face just forward of his ear. It's not that noticeable to me, so I've never seen it before, but he says it's been there for about 2 months. He says that it's sensitive to touch and he's put salves, etc. on it hoping to heal it but it hasn't worked. He assumed it was something normal and would heal on its own but is now concerned because it's been there for 2 months.

Is this something that sounds like it could be skin cancer? That's our big worry right now.
