Viagra Increases the Risk of Deadly Skin Cancer

Melanoma is a deadly form of skin cancer that strikes more than 70,000 Americans per year and kills nearly 10,000. A 10-year study from Harvard Medical School of nearly 15,000 men found that Viagra use increased the risk of melanoma by 224 percent. Viagra did not increase the risk of squamous cell cancer. Erectile dysfunction was not a risk factor for melanoma. Viagra downregulates genes that correct genetic errors linked to the development of the disease.
