skin cancer and my dad..

hi all,

a few months ago my dad finally went to his gp becasue he had these things that looked like pimples all over him, on his legs, his face, his back etc,, the gp said it was skin cancer and he had to go in and get them burnt off, which is what he has done, the dr told him if the scabs dont heal then hes to go back and see him, they look like they have healed but the other week i said to him, "whats that on your leg, is it the skin cancer" he said no he's fine..

I am just wondering.. dad has told me there is nothing to worry about, that he new someone with skin cancer who just keep getting them burnt off for years and years and that was all that needed to be done.. is he right?

Im not sure weather he just doesnt want the rest of us to worry about him or weather there really isnt anything to be concerned about..

i dont no anything about this..

should i be concerened? i am worried hes not being concerend enuff but i dont no..

Re: skin cancer and my dad..

I have a feeling what you are talking about is burnt/frozen off because it is not melanoma. It is a pre-skin cancer and I forget the name of it - but it is not technically cancer. That is the normal procedure with that type of pre-skin cancer spots.

Re: skin cancer and my dad..

ahh thank you! i didnt really no what i was talking about as all i was told was that he had skin cancer and had to get it burnt off, perhaps its more taking them off to so they dont turn into skin cancer.. thanks heaps, he is probablly right then in not needing to worry, he probably just has to be careful.. ty muchly!!
