Viagra Side Effects Lawsuits Possible If Melanoma Link Confirmed

viagra-side-effects-lawsuit-melanoma-skin-cancerIn a recent study presented by Wen-Qing Li, Abrar A. Qureshi, Kathleen C. Robinson, Jiali Han, all respected names within the medical / internal medicine community, the PDE5A inhibitor sildenafil most commonly referred to by the trade name Viagra has been found to possibly increase the risk developing certain types of cancer.

In an original study published by JAMA, researchers found that men who use Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction or other off label uses, were 84% more likely to develop life threatening side effects in the form of Melanoma: the most dangerous form of skin cancer. If further research proves this link to be true, lawyers will likely begin filing lawsuits soon after new information proving this link is readily availible.

Researchers armed with data from some 25,000 men whom participated in the Health Professionals Follow Up Study, showed that men whom had used Viagra / Sildenafil had nearly double the potential risk for melanoma skin cancer than those who had not taken Viagra. Further analysis showed no link to Viagra and other forms of skin cancer.

The study did not research skin cancer links between other common PDE5A inhibitors such as tadalafil ( Cialis ) or vardenafil ( Lavitra ) due to those drugs not being available for the study. Researchers have however noted that longer acting similar drugs such as these may actually present an even higher level of risk.

 

It should be noted that this is an observational preliminary study in retrospect and therefore these findings should not alter clinical recommendations / prescriptions until further research data becomes available. As such, Do I Have A Lawsuit Affiliated attorneys will not likely file lawsuits in light of this data at this time.
