While I'm not a fan of melatonin myself, in all fairness, you'll find that no medicinal treatment is helpful in effectively treating adrenal disease when lymphoma or other malignant cancers are present.

Adrenal carcinomas are not a rare thing, all diseased adrenal glands will become carcinomas if not treated or treated soon enough, and all carcinomas will eventually metastasize if not removed. The way adrenal disease works, hormone production causes enlargement of the adrenal glands which then proceed to a precancerous state, then a benign cancerous state (adenoma), and then to a malignant cancerous state (adenocarcinoma).
