Cancer is defined by the primary site. For example, if cancer starts in the pancreas and spreads to the liver, you don't have liver cancer, you have pancreatic cancer in the liver. The cells will be consistent with cells from the pancreas. Your father has cancer cells in his pancreas but they are NOT cells that originated in the pancreas, but cells consistent with another part of his body where the cancer started. The prognosis could be much better than that of pancreatic cancer.
