At a briefing, Hank presents his theory that Albuquerque has a new kingpin. At a barbecue, Skyler breaks down and Walter reveals to Hank, Marie and Walter, Jr. that he has cancer. Walter, Jr. doesn't respond well. The hole in Jesse's ceiling raises some questions. The meth is also making Jesse extremely paranoid. Skyler makes Walter go see a top oncologist. The doctor says it is possible to cure Walter, but it will be expensive. Walter does not want to risk leaving Skyler in debt. When Walter tries parking his car outside MESA, a narcissistic yuppie in his shiny, expensive, convertible BMW with the vanity plate "KEN WINS" cuts into a just-vacated square Walter was waiting for to park into. Ken's just messed with the wrong man. Written by

The title of this episode is an inside joke to "The X-Files", on which series creator Vince Gilligan had previously served as a writer and producer. "Cancer Man" was the disparaging nickname that Fox Mulder had given to the Cigarette-Smoking Man on that series. See more
When Walt is changing his bandage for his leg wound he uses hydrogen peroxide to sterilize the wound. After he changes the bandage he notices blood on his pant leg and then proceeds to try and scrub the blood out of the pants with water and a toothbrush. Any good chemist (as Walt is) would know that hydrogen peroxide would clear that blood spot in a heartbeat and not damage the pant leg in the process. See more
