NORTH CAROLINA ATTORNEYS READY TO HELP VICTIMS CITING VIAGRA AS MELANOMA CAUSE

 

What Are the Side Effects of Viagra? Cialis? Is Skin Cancer a Possibility?

In 2014, a study that was published reported a link between men who routinely use erectile dysfunction medicine, such as Viagra and the chance to develop malignant melanoma, an incredibly deadly form of skin cancer, by more than 80%. The study followed over 25,000 men, for a duration of ten (10) years, and out of the 25,000 men, 1,600 of those people had admitted to taking Viagra. As of this time, a direct link has not been found or established, but this study did show that Viagra can mimic the key parts of a cell-signaling process that enables melanoma cells to metastasize, or spread, throughout the body. At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban, our attorneys are dedicated to fighting for those who may now be suffering from side effects caused by Viagra, or other ED drugs like Cialis. If you, or someone you love, is an ED drug user, and has also contracted melanoma as a result, our mass tort attorneys are prepared to obtain the financial compensation that you deserve.

Are There Signs of Melanoma? What Should I Look For?

Unfortunately, melanoma is the most debilitating form of skin cancer. On a yearly basis, roughly 75,000 Americans are diagnosed with melanoma and more than 9,500 will die as a result. Over 50% of those victims will be men, however if recognized by a physician and treated early on, it’s almost always able to be cured. There are two key strategies to take when attempting to locate melanoma, those are: 

  • The ‘ABCDE’s: 
    • Asymmetrical shapes, Borders which are uneven, and also have rough edges, Colors which are more than one shade, Diameters larger than a pencil eraser, and Evolution in size, shape, color, or even elevation.
  • The ‘Ugly Duckling’: If a person has a pattern on moles on their skin, and one specific mole is different in either size or shape, and also changes over time, please consider visiting your primary care physician immediately.
