What is this test?

Melanin is a dark-colored pigment that gives color to skin, eyes, and hair. The cells that produce melanin are called melanocytes. Melanin levels are drastically elevated in individuals who have melanoma, a dangerous type of skin cancer. Melanin appears through the urine after being converted from melanogens; compounds produced in abundance with melanoma. Melanogens are excreted in the urine, and after being exposed to air for many hours are converted to melanin. Because melanin is dark-colored, the urine turns deep brown to black after significant levels of melanogens are converted to melanin. The Melanin Urine Test helps determine the levels of melanin in urine. It is used to diagnose melanoma.
