Treatment for melanoma should take your mind and your body into account. “The mind, body, and spirit have a reciprocal relationship, and each affects the other,” David Wakefield, M.D., a doctor at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, says on the organization's website. Their cancer treatment programs integrate mind and body treatment. For example, they often include laughter therapy, pet therapy, music therapy, and spiritual counseling during cancer treatment. Ask your doctor about these options.
