Yes.: This is not normal. Is your dad an alcohol drinker? He needs to stop and see a GI specialized in cirrhosis of the liver, unfortunately. Best luck to you!

Follow-up: Some of these findings are indicative of high blood flow in the portal system, most commonly due to significant liver disease. I strongly recommend that your father follow-up with his gastroenterologist for further work-up.
