Erectile dysfunction drugs unlikely to cause melanoma, researchers conclude

23 junio 2015

A rigorous analysis of more than 20,000 medical records concludes that erectile dysfunction drugs are not a cause of melanoma, an often deadly form of skin cancer, despite the higher risk for the disease among users of these drugs. For the study, researchers matched and analyzed the medical records of men whose care was being monitored in Sweden, one of the few countries in the world taking a population-wide approach to battling melanoma and other types of cancer, and for which no comparable North American data source exists.
