According to an article released by MedPage Today , “People who used common nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) had a significantly lower risk of melanoma and squamous-cell skin cancer  and the benefit increased with duration and drug dose, according to” a study published online in the journal Cancer. “Any NSAID use was associated with a 15% reduction in the relative risk of squamous-cell skin cancer and a 13% lower risk of melanoma,” researchers reported. “NSAID use had no overall effect on basal-cell skin cancer (BCC), but was associated with a statistically reduced risk of BCC at sites other than the head and neck,” the study found. MedPage Today points out that the NSAIDs used in the study were prescriptions and not over-the-counter medicines. This subject was also reported by BBC News as well.That’s good news!
