Viagra® Melanoma Skin Cancer Lawsuits

Lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys are investigating claims that Viagra® (sildenafil) use may lead to an increased risk of melanoma.. Viagra is manufactured by Pfizer and has been prescribed to more than 20 million men since it was approved to treat erectile dysfunction in 1998.

The popular blue pill was the subject of a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that suggested a link between taking Viagra and melanoma.

If you developed melanoma after using Viagra, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, pain, suffering, and other costs and expenses. Don’t suffer in silence—if your skin cancer was caused by an erectile dysfunction drug, you deserve compensation.

The nationally-recognized drug injury lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys are representing men across the United States who developed melanoma after taking Viagra that had been prescribed by their physicians.

Study Suggests Melanoma Is 84% More Common After Viagra® Use

In June 2014, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported the results of a long-term study linking melanoma and Viagra use.

Researchers examined data from The Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, a long-term study by the Harvard School of Public Health, which tracked the data of nearly 26,000 men from 1986 through 2000. The research team looked at both the instances of melanoma in these men and their reported Viagra use.

Even after controlling for factors like a history of skin cancer and UV light exposure, men who had taken Viagra were significantly more likely to develop melanoma than those who did not. Of the men who did not use Viagra, 4.3 men 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.

The drug injury lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys are carefully reviewing the medical evidence to help Viagra melanoma victims across the United States determine whether or not they should take legal action.
