Viagra has helped love lives across the world but new research suggests men who take the blue pill may increase their risk of skin cancer.

Researchers at Brown University say men who use Viagra are 84-percent more likely to develop melanoma. They claim the impotence drug may affect the same genetic mechanism that enables skin cancer to become more invasive.

But since the study is preliminary, researchers say it is too early to advise men to stop taking Viagra.
