Aspirin May Protect Women Against Skin Cancer
Aspirin may reduce a woman’s chances of developing melanoma.
New research in the journal Cancer looked at nearly 60,000 women for about 12 years.
The study found women who used aspirin had a 21 percent lower risk of melanoma.
Women who used aspirin for five years or longer had a 30 percent lower risk.
Researchers did not find the same link when they looked at other pain medications like acetaminophen.
