My father was diagnosed with melanoma several months ago. He had surgery to remove the whole cheek area from his face and had plastic surgery to correct any abnormalities the surgery left...Biopsies of the lymph nodes revealed no cancer had spread. He had his last radiation treatmet 3 weeks ago...However, he developed a film over his right eye and went to the eye doctor and they said it was just a fast growing cateract which would require cateract surgery. He is scared the cancer from his face has metastasized to his eye...What are the chances of this if the biopsies came back clear??
