Unfortunately, : Unfortunately, no one on this board can answer your questions as we cannot view the reports or images from your father's MRI scans. It sounds like you need to make another appointment with your father's physician to clarify the results and make sure everyone involved understands the current situation and the plan for going forward.

Probably tumor: It is hard to understand your question. If there are new 'lumps' in the brain as seen with mri, these would likely be interpreted as progressive tumor, and one would not suggest the chemotherapy is working well. You need to ask for a detailed explanationfrom the doctors, or perhaps seek second opinions.
