Your dad should have a yearly physical examination for cancer of the skin, lymph nodes, thyroid, rectum and prostate. He should also have a blood pressure, vision and glaucoma check done every two years. A stool sample should also be done to check for blood. It is also important to have his cholesterol and blood sugar checked every three to five years. It is also important to have a sigmodidoscopy done after 50 years of age to exclude colon cancer.
