Viagra Symptoms and Side-Effects

Viagra May Increase Melanoma Risk

According to a recent Harvard Medical School Study, men who have taken Viagra (generic name sildenafil), are nearly twice as likely to develop melanoma as men who have never taken the drug. Researchers determined that patients who took Viagra faced increased risk of developing melanoma regardless of their family histories of skin cancers, medical histories of other cancers, and ultraviolet exposure in regions where they lived.

One co-author of the study suggests that Viagra may trigger melanoma – as opposed to other less aggressive skin cancers because it affects the same genetic pathways that allow skin cancers to become more invasive.

Melanoma is a dangerous, often fatal disease. It is true that melanoma can be successfully treated in it’s early stages, however, it often goes undetected until it is in later stages and has spread to other parts of the body.

According to the National Cancer Institute, melanoma diagnoses have been on the rise over the past ten years and is the fifth most common cancer among men.
