My daughter has recently been diagnosed with melanoma. Her mole was on the back of her thigh. It was removed. 1.45mm thickness. The sentinel nodes were removed in her leg and groin (2). One positive node was found in her groin area. The cancer cluster was .05mm. More lymph nodes were removed, total of 7. All were benign. The mole was atypical Spitz mole, almost always benign. The numbers don't really match up. They say she is in Stage IIIa . Interferon is suggested by doctors to start soon. Just not sure. Her cancer is so unusual. What about fertility after using interferon??? Any help would be appreciated. She is only 21 years old.
