Viagra And Skin Cancer

Viagra And Skin Cancer?

The headlines are gripping: “Viagra increases risk for melanoma.” And commercials somberly advise,‘If you or a loved one has suffered melanoma, you should contact a Viagra attorney for a free consultation today.” So why aren’t older men dropping dead of melanoma on every street corner?

Boob sweat may sound funny to some, but enough women seek medical advise on it for me to write this article.
