  • Heartburn
  • Headache
  • Diarrhea
  • Nosebleeds
  • Numbness or tingling of the arms, hands, legs, or feet

There are also a number of serious side effects, which warrant contacting your doctor immediately. These include:

  • Rash
  • Burning or itching during urination

A Connection Between Viagra and Skin Cancer

JAMA Internal Medicine published a long-term study in 2014, linking Viagra use to melanoma. Researchers found that men who used Viagra were 84 percent more likely to develop melanoma over a period of 10 years.

What is Melanoma?

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that develops when something goes wrong with the skin cells, melanocytes. Melanocytes are the cells that produce a brown pigment, giving you a suntan. When the DNA in the skin cells is damaged, new cells can grow, creating a cancerous mass.

If it is discovered before having the chance to spread, it can be removed. If it has already spread, when the patient may be required to have surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation. This type of skin cancer is particularly severe and can be fatal.

Studies Evaluating Link Between Melanoma and Viagra

The 2014 Harvard study was the result of data collected from men who took part in the Health Professionals' Follow-up Study.

In another 2015 study, the study concluded that while there was a statistically significant increase in melanoma, the association could be casual and the result of lifestyle factors like an increase in sun exposure among those men.

In 2016, the FDA announced that it was evaluating the need to take regulatory action because of the risks for skin cancer.

The Viagra lawsuit lawyer at Tosi Law LLP are carefully reviewing the evidence to help men who have been diagnosed with melanoma after taking Viagra to determine whether they should pursue legal action.

Damages You May Recover After Your Viagra Claim

Every case is different, so we cannot make any estimate about exactly what damages you could recover in your case. However, some of the common damages victims are able to recover in similar cases include:

  • Medical expenses, including surgeries, treatments, medication, and doctors' visits
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost wages

Wrongful Death

Melanoma can be deadly. And men who have lost their lives in the fight against melanoma cannot invoke their rights to compensation. Instead, it is up to their family members to pursue damages through a wrongful death claim.

Some of the damages you may be entitled to in a wrongful death lawsuit include:

  • Funeral costs
  • Lost wages and benefits provided by the deceased
  • Loss of support and protection
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of consortium

How the Statute of Limitations Could Impact Your Case

Each state has its own statute of limitations, placing time limits on how long you have to file a lawsuit in a personal injury claim. Drug-related injuries can be complicated, and it can be challenging to know when the clock began for filing a Viagra lawsuit.

A Viagra lawsuit lawyer can explain how the statute of limitations could impact your claim. They can also evaluate your case and explain what options you have to pursue damages in your unique situation.
