There are many things that could be wrong, but I don't think cancer is the most likely problem. You say that he's been on a morphine pump for the pain associated with back problems. It's possible he's gotten an infection from the pump site which has spread systemically. It's also possible that his back has gotten worse. The swelling could also be from a number of issues.

The best thing to do here is to see his primary care physician. These symptoms could be caused by so many things, and probably the first step is to do some blood work to see if anything is abnormal. That would give the doctors a clue as to where to look. Also, the doctor he sees for his back pain may have some ideas.
