Effect of Melatonin on Melanoma

There is a wide range of evidence that high doses of melatonin can help prevent melanoma, and also can help kill melanoma tumors and help stop them from spreading. See below for a partial listing of studies, some on animals and some on people, supporting the use of melatonin in fighting melanoma. You can also search PubMed.gov for "melanoma melatonin".

It has also been shown that the amount of melatonin taken affects its effectiveness. It is not known what the "ideal" amount to be taken should be, however, many doctors who use melatonin for melanoma treatment will suggest something in the range of 20mg per night. It is best to take it at night because it causes drowsiness.
