Melanoma and Interferon
Effect of Interferon on Melanoma
If the melanoma is Stage 2 or higher, your doctor may recommend one of a number of treatments used to stop the growth of melanoma, kill tumors, or prevent recurrence. The only FDA approved “standard” treatment for melanoma is called Interferon. Through a number of studies this treatment has been shown to have some positive effect on the chances that melanoma spreads or recurs.
