Melanoma from Erectile Dysfunction Drugs
Did you get skin cancer from Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn, Stendra, Revatio, or Adcirca?
A new study shows that certain drugs that inhibit phosphodiesterase 5, called PDE5, could lead to skin cancer and the study has been gaining a lot of attention in the news. We are investigating claims related to skin cancer and melanoma after taking Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn, Stendra, Revatio, or Adcirca. If you have been diagnosed with melanoma after taking one of these drugs commonly prescribed for erectile dysfunction (ED), benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), you may have a claim.
Experimental studies show that PDE5 inhibition increases the invasiveness of tumor cells in vitro. In addition, this new study shows that active ingredients sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil, and avanafil inhibit PDE5. There are a number cases being filed related to skin cancer caused by drugs that include these active ingredients.
Are there risks with taking Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn, Stendra, Revatio, or Adcirca?
Despite adamant claims by the manufacturers of these drugs, there is the potential that there is a link between skin cancer and drugs that contain these four active ingredients. These risks were not disclosed to patients before they began treatment. Although manufacturers may claim they did not know about the risks, if the claims are true, they have exposed thousands of unsuspecting Americans to unnecessary skin cancer risks.
We would like to speak with you if you have been diagnosed with skin cancer after taking any one of these drugs or any other drugs with similar active ingredients that have been linked to potentially harmful skin cancer. Our experienced drug injury legal team is reviewing claims to seek compensation for victims of insufficient drug testing in a number of cases.

What makes up a drug side-effect lawsuit?
Like many other medical lawsuits, holding the manufacturer responsible for the harm they’ve caused to you or a loved one requires building a robust, well-documented case to prove that their device caused the harm or that that a drug was at fault.
Our drug injury attorneys know that drug companies will try to prove their products did not cause the alleged harm or injury. Our goal is to prove that their insufficient testing was the reason for the illness, side-effects and complications, not the patients for allegedly not following physician’s instructions, patient selection, or improper use. To do that, we work with our clients to gather together medical documentation, testimonies, experts, and medical studies.
Getting together all of these pieces of a drug side-effect claim not only takes time, but often takes knowledge as to how medical facilities work and what drug makers do to prevent claims.
A drug side-effect lawyer may be able to help you make your claim and gather together all the information for a skin cancer ED drug lawsuit. Our medical injury firm offers free initial consultations at no charge to learn about your case and see if we can help you pursue damages.
Successful drug side-effect cases can often recover compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses, both caused by the injury and future expenses for conditions caused by the injury
- Lost wages, even if you could go back to work after recovery
- Loss of earning potential
- Long term care
- Loss of consortium to spouses due to life-changing injuries or death
- Pain and suffering
- Other damages, such as parental support, life’s enjoyment and more
