Diet may also help you fight and beat melanoma once a tumor has formed. There are two ways that diet can be helpful. First, there are specific foods that can help prevent and fight melanoma. Additionally, there are specific diets that many believe can be even more effective.

Nutrition therapy for melanoma
Treatment for melanoma can cause side effects, including weight loss, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, low blood counts and increased risk of infection. These side effects can inhibit your ability to stay nourished and interfere with your treatment.
Your dietitian will work closely with the other members of your care team, including your oncologist, gastroenterologist and naturopathic clinician, throughout your treatment. Together, they will recommend supplements and other therapies to support optimal digestion and nutrition, and help you manage side effects.
For instance, using ginger products and eating bland foods can help you manage nausea. Also, consuming enough protein to build red and white cells can be a challenge, but is vital. Your dietitian may recommend an appetite stimulant, high protein nutritional drinks, or specific high protein foods to help you meet your needs. If you have low blood counts, you'll need to take precaution to reduce bacterial exposure from food. Your dietitian will help you navigate which foods to avoid and help you find substitutes.
