      I don't know if anyone reads this far down the line on the Bullitin Bd but will ask.   I am waiting  to take IPI maybe.  I have d

      taken Temodar but didn't help.   I have a question for anyone.    If I don't do anything, what might happen to these spots I have.   A lump in lymph node near armpit?    A spot on my lower back. Spine I guess.    A spot in my lung.   The lymph node shoots some pain in my shoulder area now occasionally.   Will it get worse.  I have a fairly large lump under skin in front of right ear.   Not too noticable .    anyone think it will get bigger if I dont take anything.   My hearts is so darn bad I don't think I can take much chemo.   My 3 months of Temodar was 330 mg daily for 5 days then 23 days off.  Not many side effects.       I just don't know what to do.
