Viagra Linked to Deadly Skin Cancer

Viagra (sildenafil) is one of the most popular drugs in the world. It has given aging Romeos the possibility of sustaining normal sexual activity into old age. Unfortunately, it increases the risk of melanoma, a deadly and aggressive form of skin cancer. A 2014 study from the University of Indiana showed that regular use of Viagra increased the risk of melanoma by nearly 100 percent. German researchers from the University of Tübingen concluded that Viagra increases the activity of protein kinase-1, which promotes melanoma growth. Men who use Viagra should take extra care to use sunscreen every day. (Cell Reports, 14:1-12, 2016)
