Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Weight loss - that too such a degree and in such a short time - is an ominous sign.
He MUST BE ADMITTED TO A HOSPITAL - as soon as possible.
He needs a battery of investigations - malignancy is first in the list...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
