Viagra and the risk of melanoma

From the Dermatologist’s forum :

“Just wondering what you tell patients about the melanoma risk with Viagra use? I’ve had 2 patients in the last week asking about it. The study was quite a decent prospective one but still the only one to my knowledge.

“This was mentioned at the World Congress of Skin Cancer in Edinburgh in September this year with no firm conclusion drawn. However the presenter also mentioned the result of a survey: 60+% of men thought it was worth the risk while 98% of women agreed it was worth the risk!!”

Just repeating, 98% of women agreed (that it was worth the risk) !
