Hi  -   My father is 81 and has had melanoma for 2 years. He has had a couple of surgeries, radiation, and interferon. His last scan showed a couple of new spots and the doctor wants him to take Temodar. He also has frontal lobe dementia. Does anybody know if Temodar will affect the dementia or make it worse? Our doctor seemed unsure.

I am unsure about Temodar's effect on Dementia. However, I can tell you that I had a completel and durable response to Temodar for a lung met and had minimal side effects. Best of luck with your father's treatment.
