Hello there My dad over the last few days has found some disturbing red spots that are bit smaller than the size of a 5 cent piece (if this is an american forum, then maybe a dime?). My dad has cancer in the stomach aswell (not sure if this is needed but just in case) and the spots dont seem to be itchy. Over the last few days they have spread a bit further down his arm (it started from around the shoulder but doesnt go past the elbow). Reason im posting this is to just get something out of it, its easter monday tommorow and all the doctors will be closed and I felt like i should do something now. It would be awesome if anyone can shed just what they know, if its related to anything cancerous or not. Below is a picture (sorry if its bad, the flash that needed to be on really really lightens the red colour, its much darker and icky in real life).


thank you so much for reading! questions are welcome!
