The present disclosure is directed to methods of treating malignant melanoma by irradiating sites to which melanoma cells have become locally advanced, surgically undesirable, or have metastasized. In various embodiments of the invention, patients are treated with radiation doses in amounts ranging from about 25 to 230 cGy, preferably about 100 cGy to about 200 cGy, at least twice a day.
