Last Feb 2013 my dad has cancer in his lower jaw & it was removed, replaced with a bone from his leg. This Feb 2014 he had a cancerous tumor removed from the same jaw but it was on the upper jaw (size of a golf ball). Now he has a huge indentation in his cheek that has started getting bumps that burst. They start as little pin hole sized with a white head & grow larger until they pop. Also noticed he has a lump behind/below his ear on that side that's the size of maybe half a golf ball. He also has Parkinson's. I cannot get him to go back to the doctor anymore and am scared, not sure what to do at this point. Any suggestions?
