Viagra (sildenafil citrate) is a drug produced by Pfizer Inc. that was approved by the FDA in 1998 to treat erectile dysfunction.

However, a recent study indicated that Viagra use may be linked to an increased risk of the user developing melanoma skin cancer. Although subsequent reports have backed this study up, as of May 2016, Viagra does not carry a label warning users of the drugs potential to cause melanoma.

Various resources indicated the following as initial signs of melanoma:

  • A change in an existing mole.
  • The development of a new pigmented or unusual-looking growth on your skin.

Or, the following features in skin spots:

  • Asymmetry
  • Border irregularity
  • Color changes
  • Diameter greater than 1/4 inch (about 6 millimeters)
  • Evolving

Have Any Viagra Melanoma Skin Cancer Lawsuits Won Settlements?

As of May 2016, no settlements have been publicly offered by Pfizer Inc. or accepted by plaintiffs.

However, with 31 federal cases active against Pfizer Inc., there is a likely chance that if the first case is decided in favor of the plaintiffs, that other plaintiffs will begin fielding settlement offers.

The likelihood of Pfizer Inc. issuing settlement offers will only increase as more lawsuits are filed against them on behalf of consumers who were subjected to a heightened risk of melanoma due to taking their drug.

To preempt the likely increase in cases, a federal panel ordered on April 7, 2016 that all future Viagra cases would be overseen by U.S. District Court Judge Richard Seeborg of the Northern District of California.

With a multidistrict litigation already in place for future Viagra cases, the results of initial cases will be examined closely as they will set a precedent for future Viagra melanoma cases.

Predicting the exact amount of future Viagra settlements is difficult, but a settlement will likely cover:

  1. Costs of lawsuit incurred
  2. Compensatory and general damages
  3. Punitive damages
  4. Special and incidental damages, including medical expenses and lost wages
  5. Loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and disability
  6. Wrongful death damages, if person died due to this dangerous drug

Past cases involving major drug companies and their majors drugs would indicate a desire for a swift end to litigation if initial decisions side on behalf of the plaintiffs.
