ED Skin Cancer

Viagra (Sildenafil)

Viagra (sildenafil) is used to treat erectile dysfunction. In June 2014, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association reported the PDE5A inhibitors in sildenafil could potentially increase the risk of developing melanoma.

  • Of the men who never used Viagra, 4.3 out of every 1,000 developed melanoma skin cancer.
    • Of the men who reported using the erectile dysfunction drug, 8.6 men out of every 1,000 developed melanoma — an 84 percent increase.
