If a father has one kind of cancer is it genetic for a son to get a completely different form of cancer?

Update:

Obviously anyone with any sense would understand I'm talking about when each person grows older and gets cancer. ie....is it genetic if one has bowel cancer for the son to end up with leukemia is that genetic.

    usually not.  Some genetic susceptibility to some kinds of cancer is possible, but most cancers are caused by environmental factors: smoking, boozing, chemicals, UV-exposure, particulate matter..
