Camp Lejeune: Hodgkin's lymphoma claims

Camp Lejeune: Hodgkin's lymphoma claims video

Also known as Hodgkin's disease, this cancer occurs in nearly 9,000 people every year in the US. While the exact cause of Hodgkin's lymphoma has not yet been found, there are certain factors whose presence increases the risk of developing it, such as being over the age of 55, having a poor immune system, and being male. However, exposure to the chemical hazards at Camp Lejeune has also been linked to Hodgkin's lymphoma. If you were stationed at Camp Lejeune, either alone or with your family members, and came to struggle with this disease, please contact our law firm, because we might be able to recover financial compensation for you.

Exposure to benzene can greatly increase the risk of developing Hodgkin's lymphoma

Hodgkins lymphoma

In Hodgkin's lymphoma, there is a genetic mutation that occurs in a white blood cell known as a lymphocyte, whose purpose is to fight infections and diseases.

Subsequently, this mutation causes too many ineffective lymphocytes in the lymph nodes and results in the swelling of the lymph nodes, spleen, and liver. Every year, over 8,800 people receive a diagnosis of Hodgkin's lymphoma nationwide.

A study from the medical journal Epidemiology also found exposure to industrial solvents to contribute to the development of Hodgkin's lymphoma. The researchers observed a significantly higher risk of the disease among people regularly exposed to benzene, toluene, and xylene. Benzene was lurking on Camp Lejeune during the last century due to multiple sources of contamination, including leaking underground storage tanks and waste disposal sites.
