Study Links Viagra Use to Increased Incidence of Melanoma

The study concluded that men who take Viagra are 84% more likely to develop melanoma than men who do not take Viagra. Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer. Furthermore, Viagra may also increase the invasiveness of melanoma, thus reducing the window available for effective cancer treatment.
