Colon cancer. Face red and sweaty, pale lips. Was it breathing issue?

My father died four days ago. Before we took him to ER, he was suffering colon cancer . I know he was in great pain at the time. I want to know why his face was red and sweaty but his nose and upper lips turn white (pale) and cold. Was it a breathing problem or something else? It was so hard to watch him without knowing what to do. - Estel

Sorry to hear about your fathers demise. Severe pain can cause redness and flushing of face. It is more obvious in fair skinned people. Circulatory disturbances cause pallor of extremities and make them cold. All this part of physiological process. I think you should stop thinking of all this come out of it. Life goes on and it is best to take life as it comes. Take care
