Viagra Skin Cancer Symptoms

Learn more about the various symptoms associated with Viagra-induced skin cancer.

Our lawyers are now accepting potential lawsuits on behalf of men who were diagnosed with skin cancer after taking Viagra, the world’s best-selling erectile dysfunction (ED) drug. A recent study published in JAMA Internal Medicine has found that Viagra users may be up to 85% more likely than non-users to develop melanoma, the most deadly form of the disease. This article discusses the various symptoms associated with Viagra skin cancer.

What are the Signs of Skin Cancer?

The following are the most common symptoms of melanoma skin cancer. However, these findings may vary significantly on a patient to patient basis. Symptoms of Viagra skin cancer may include:

  • Change in the size, shape or color of an existing mole
  • Oozing or bleeding from a mole
  • A mole that appears different than other moles or feels itchy, hard, bumpy, swollen or tender to the touch

Due to the fact that most melanoma cells produce melanin, Viagra skin cancer tumors typically appear brown or black in color; however, they can also be flesh-colored, blue, or pink. In some cases, melanoma can present as a new pigmented lesion. The disease can migrate to other regions in the body through the lymph system or bloodstream. Like most forms of cancer, melanoma is most effectively treated when it is recognized and diagnosed early.

Distinguishing Benign Moles from Cancerous Tumors

To diagnose Viagra skin cancer early, when it’s most treatable, it’s important to examine your skin regularly, and become familiar with your moles and other skin lesions in order to better recognize changes.

Some varieties of moles are more likely to develop into melanoma than others. Moles that are present at birth, as well as atypical moles, may have a greater chance of becoming cancerous. However, it is important to understand that most malignant melanomas do not develop from pre-existing moles, and so the removal of a benign-appearing mole is not always necessary.

Identifying changes in your moles, by following this ABCDE Chart, can be useful for diagnosing Viagra skin cancer in its early stages:

  • A: Asymmetry – When half the mole does not match the other half
  • B: Border – When the edges of the mole are ragged or irregular
  • C: Color – When the color of the mole varies (different hues of brown, black, white, red or blue)
  • D: Diameter – If the mole’s diameter is greater than a pencil eraser (5-6 mm)
  • E: Evolving – Mole or skin lesion that looks different from others, or is changing in shape, color or size.
