Erectile dysfunction drugs increase the risk of cancer

(NaturalHealth365) Viagra, along with other erectile dysfunction (ED) drugs, have been found to increase the risk of melanoma by 84%. This is according to a new study that found men who regularly use ‘performance enhancing’ drugs, like Viagra, are much more likely to develop melanoma.

Why risk your life? Especially when there are so many alternatives to Viagra. The most startling news of the study showed than men who only took Viagra once doubled their risk of this type skin cancer.

A large study in JAMA Internal Medicine – that followed nearly 26, 000 men who had used Viagra at least once since the study began in 2000 – showed it increased their risk of melanoma.

Jonathan LandsmanOne of the new study’s co-authors, Dr. Abrar Qureshi, who chairs the Dermatology Department at Brown Alpert Medical School, stated that Viagra may increase the risks of melanoma because it affects the same genetic pathway that allows the skin cancer to become more invasive.

It found that those men who used Viagra a number of times had about an 84 percent greater risk of developing melanoma than men who had not used the medication. Viagra was the only drug studied because at the time research began, it was the only approved erectile dysfunction medication.

Other erectile dysfunction drugs, such as Cialis and Levitra, work on the same biochemistry and may pose an even greater risk for melanoma because they last longer in the body.

How could any conscious, well-educated physician prescribe this lethal drug?

This study was initiated after prior studies showed that Viagra promoted melanin synthesis, which itself can promote melanoma development. In addition, published research has linked this drug and other like ones to promoting melanoma cell invasion.

That would make Viagra-related melanoma cancers even more dangerous. In fact, in the lab, Viagra can actually make melanoma more aggressive.

Prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications increases the risk for erectile dysfunction. The most common ones are high blood pressure medication, diuretics, beta-blockers and calcium-channel blockers.

In all honesty

I have never heard of an erectile injection. Viagra and cialis are still the talk of all medical professionals and their patients. I really think you should consider that your guy injected something and maybe it was a controlled substance unrelated to erectile dysfunction. There are some men that get really horned up on drugs but most can't raise their eyebrow much less their dick while under the influence of a drug.
