Need more info...: And i advise waiting for the official radiologist or nuclear physician report. What is seen on the technologist screen is not of the same quality as the physician interprets.

My dad started taking prenatal vitamins and he started with white spots on his legs how bad can it be ?

Unrelated, not very: Prenatal vitamins are perfectly harmless for your father to take. I don't know any way they could cause anyone to get white spots so it's a coincidence. I can't say for sure how bad it is as i can't be sure what it is, but it might be vitiligo, an autoimmune condition that is not particularly serious other than being a cosmetic issue, or might be a fungal infection. He should see a dermatologist. ...Read more
