Viagra
Viagra has been linked to nearly a doubling of melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer, in men who used the erectile dysfunction medication, according to a recent study.

Hummer Law Offices is investigating claims on behalf of men who used Viagra (sildenafil) and were diagnosed with melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer. A recent study found that men currently using Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction were 84 percent more likely to develop melanoma when compared to men not using the drug. In light of this information, the attorneys at Morgan & Morgan are investigating whether Pfizer Inc. knew or should have known about a link between Viagra and melanoma to help determine whether patients can take legal action.

Nearly 10,000 people die each year of melanoma, with some 76,000 new cases diagnosed annually. Two-thirds of those who die are men.

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.
