Viagra® (sildenafil citrate) is a prescription erectile dysfunction drug that has been used by more than 25 million men in the United States. But a recent study has linked sildenafil–the main ingredient in both Viagra and the hypertension drug Revatio®—to an increased risk of developing melanoma, an aggressive and deadly form of skin cancer.

Study Finds Viagra® Melanoma Dangers

study of nearly 26,000 male patients conducted by the Department of Dermatology at Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University linked drugs containing sildenafil to the development of melanoma. Researchers concluded that men who take drugs containing sildenafil–even once–are 84 percent more likely to develop melanoma regardless of their family histories of cancer, medical histories, or sun exposure where they lived.

The study’s co–author suggests that Viagra and Revatio may lead to melanoma (as opposed to less invasive forms of skin cancer) because sildenafil affects the same genetic pathways that allow skin cancers to become more aggressive.
