I am 32 and also recently diagnosed. Our situations are very similar. I am also diagnosed as stage 3. My tumor was on my right upper thigh. I had 2 surgeries removing the tumor and removing all lymph nodes in my groin area. My oncologist also didn't recommend interferon. I may still choose to do it anyway. I have a 2 1/2 year old son. I have to know that I am doing something to fight this. My doc did recommend a clinical trial. You should know the trial is drug vs. placebo. I'm not sure how you feel about that, but the drug is ipilimumab. Good luck on your journey.
