      Hi Everyone

       

      I am a stage 3c with no brain or organ involvement. Have 2 small tumors in thigh 4mm & 6mm. Primary in foor 2005, have had 4 recurrence in thigh and 2 remain. My doctor tells me I have slow growing,non-agreesive melanoma. Because my tumors are so small, I do not qualigy for trials requiring 1 CM size tumors.

      My doctor is suggesting low dose (75 mg) temaodar for 42 days on & 2 weeks off.
