In brief: I've skipped this

Question 15 times.
Dad may need help if he has cancer, but you and mom may need to prepare coping to deal with what kind of cancer and how it will change him, and what you need to do to help. The lightening bolt is that life delivers issues you do not prepare for, so when they hit, it's a shock. Establish the facts first, then inventory what needs to be done. It is a wake up call!

In brief: See your physician.

There are many forms of cancer.
Cancer can occur almost anywhere in the body, even in the blood and bone. Depending on what cancer your dad may/may not have, there are different symptoms. That is why you must get your dad to see his/your physician to find out what form of cancer it is, if any. Then tests can be done to make sure, and determine what to do.
