Viagra and Cancer: Can the ED Drug Prevent Prostate Cancer?

We all know Viagra as a wonder drug for men suffering from erectile dysfunction. But recent studies show that the drug may be far more valuable than we expect, with the potential to fight different cancers in various ways.

If recent studies can be confirmed by human trials, Viagra (sildenafil) may be the first line of defense against melanoma, the most dangerous skin cancer. It may be used, not only to improve the sex lives of men who have had surgery for prostate cancer, but to prevent prostate cancer, as well. And it may even be given with anti-cancer drugs to make these more effective and to ease their serious side effects.

All these are findings of several studies, done independently and published in different scientific journals over recent years.
