About Viagra

Viagra, or Sildenafil, is a medication prescribed to men to treat erectile dysfunction. It can also treat high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary arterial hypertension). Viagra has been linked to nearly a doubling of melanoma cases, a deadly form of skin cancer. Nearly 10,000 people die each year of melanoma, with over 75,000 new cases diagnosed annually. Men make up two-thirds of those who do not survive the deadly cancer.

The Viagra study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine, found that men who took Viagra were 84 percent more likely to develop melanoma. The study, whose subjects included 26,000 men with an average age of 65, showed an increase in melanoma among Viagra users even when the findings were adjusted to take into account other variables, such as family history of skin cancer and exposure to UV rays.

One author of the study, Dr. Abrar Qureshi, chairman of the dermatology department at Brown University’s medical school, was quoted as saying that Viagra may increase the risk of melanoma because it affects the same genetic pathway that allows skin cancer to become more invasive.
