Aspirin may protect against melanoma
March 11, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Aspirin may protect against the deadliest form of skin cancer.
Researchers at Stanford University Medical School studied melanoma in 60,000 Caucasian women.
Over 12 years, the study showed women who took aspirin at least a few times a week had a 20 percent lower risk of developing melanoma.
Those who took aspirin regularly had a 30 percent lower risk.
The study appears in the journal "Cancer."
