cancerous tumor..spot in his left upper lobe..lower extremities

My father is waiting to be scheduled for a right nephrectomy in the next few weeks for a cancerous tumor into the vena cava. He also has a spot in his left upper lobe, which will require an upper lobectomy sometime later. He has now developed what looks to be Henoch-Schonlein purpura of the lower extremities. He has had this for two to three days now and states that he had a burning/stinging sensation initially, but that has now gone away. Should he be seen for this and if so, by his urologist, family practice or ???? Thanks you so very much for your attention to this!

biopsy taken that evening was inconclusive

My husband went to the ER 2 weeks ago and was diagnosed with either Henoch-Schonlein Purpura or Leukocytoclastic Vasculitis. A biopsy taken that evening was inconclusive as to which he has. The severe "rash" assocaited with both got much worse in the last two weeks but now in some areas seems to be fading. He was given the name of a dermotologist to follow-up with but his appointment is 3 weeks away from NOW. I think he should be seen sooner. From information I've gathered about these conditions, kidney failure/problems are not unheard of and he is now having severe gastrointestinal problems. He tried to get an earlier appointment but to no avail. What should we do? Is it wise to wait?

I've developed molluscum contagiosum on my groin in mid

I've developed molluscum contagiosum on my groin in mid march. These were removed by a Curet two weeks ago and I have no sign of new ones in the genital area. I did however since the procedure develop two on my face. These two were cut last week, and are scabbing. I've seen no new ones on my face, the past week. Since then I've developed one on each arm. My derm cut one on my left arm yesterday and the one on my right arm was not noticed by my derm or myself. I saw it today. I only see the one bump remaining on my right arm, I don't see a white head but it is pinkish and dome shaped, it's not small either. The bumps on my face are black and still scabbing. The ten or so on my genitals were black and now are still there but reddish/pinkish and healing. Due to the spread to my face should I worry about my immune system? I'm I on the path to to recovery, does this seem that it will cure soon? I'm a 26 year old male
