Viagra May Cause Melanoma

A products liability lawyer certainly has many issues to be aware of these days. For instance, a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association linked the popular drug Viagra with the skin cancer melanoma. Men who took Viagra were 84% more likely to develop melanoma over a 10 year period. Melanoma is a form of skin cancer with a very high death rate.

An estimated 77,000 melanoma cases will arise in 2014.  This will lead to nearly 10,000 deaths.   About one person will die of melanoma every hour of every day. Melanoma is most prevalent in men over the age of 50.

On the other hand, we are only dealing with one study. Further studies are sure to follow.

However, if you have taken Viagra and developed melanoma, you should take action. There is a deadline to file a legal claim in court. Such a deadline is called a statute of limitations. It applies to virtually every personal injury case. If you miss the deadline, you will never be able to recover any compensation. Even if your case otherwise has merit.

If you are presently taking Viagra, you may want to consider other ways of achieving the same result. Proper diet, exercise and stress management may be able to get you firm results, without the side effects.

You can read about the medical study here.  Again, if you are affected, you should contact a products liability lawyer immediately. Feel free to call me. I will be happy to speak with you.  At no charge, of course.
