Taking certain medication can lower risk of skin cancer

Posted: Updated:

Researchers in the Netherlands studied nearly 20,000 skin cancer patients.  They compared their medical records to that of 180,000 adults without the disease. They found patients who filled at least two prescriptions for N-Saids, which include aspirin, ibubrofen, and naproxen, were less likely to develop squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Past studies have also shown N-Saids can lower the risk for other forms of cancer.
