Viagra Melanoma Lawsuit and Claims

Viagra Users 84% More Likely to Develop Melanoma

Pfizer’s “Little Blue Pill” that’s used by hundreds of million of men in the United States for erectile dysfunction is under fire due to recent studies that appear to show an association between Viagra usage and melanoma skin cancer. One study in particular that was completed in 2014 by the JAMA medical journal claims that the men on the popular ED medication may have an 84% increase developing serious skin cancers like melanoma.

Thousands of lawsuits filed nationwide are putting forth the claim that Pfizer knew or should have known the side effects of Viagra including Viagra’s link to skin cancer, however, proper warnings to consumers and doctors were not provided. Research and discovery will still need to be done over the next few months to determine how strong the correlation between Viagra and skin cancer might be before making any usage decisions.

Viagra is the brand named ED medication manufactured by Pfizer that is also known as sildenafil citrate. Viagra may be the most recognized prescription medications on the market today. Pfizer introduced Viagra in 1998 as a treatment for men suffering from erectile dysfunction. It quickly became a massive hit worldwide in online and offline pharmacies.

Part of what contributed to the drug’s popularity was the aggressive direct-to-consumer advertising that offered Viagra as the solution to sexual performance issues that may affect older men. The blockbuster medication is reported as generating more than $2 billion in annual sales.

Pfizer, however, may have known more than they revealed regarding the risk of melanoma to Viagra users and failing to provide sufficient warnings that the drug may cause melanoma skin cancer. Drug manufacturers have a duty to adequately research the potential risks associated with any medication intended for human usage and any adverse side effects must be published for the safety of the consumer. The concern is that Viagra’s link to melanoma was not known publicly for more than 15 years after the drug was on the market and millions of men were regularly taking the medication.

Lawyers representing skin cancer victims nationwide believe that Pfizer knew or certainly should have known about the risk of users contracting melanoma and made conscious decision not to warn potential victims, putting their profits ahead of millions consumers’ safety.
