Hodgkin’s disease

Also known as Hodgkin’s lymphoma, this malignant disease occurs in nearly 9,000 people every year in the US. While the exact cause of Hodgkin’s disease has not yet been found, there are certain factors whose presence increase the risk of developing it, such as being over the age of 55, having a poor immune system, and being male. However, exposure to PFAS, a group of toxic chemicals that are currently polluting over 700 military sites, have also been linked to Hodgkin’s lymphoma. If you were stationed at one of these military bases, either alone or with your family members, and came to struggle with this disease, please contact our law firm, which may be able to recover financial compensation for you.

Claim Application

Even if you have a diagnosis of Hodgkin’s disease, our attorneys will have to review your military and medical records to determine whether you are indeed eligible for compensation. We offer a free evaluation to everyone who wants to file a claim.

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 your lymph nodes and results in the swelling of your lymph nodes, spleen, and liver. It is estimated that 960 people will have lost their lives to Hodgkin’s lymphoma by the end of 2021. The most common symptoms of this malignant disease include the following:

  • swelling of the lymph nodes
  • fatigue
  • night sweats
  • fever
  • unexplained weight loss
  • severe itching
  • difficulty breathing
  • a persistent cough
  • recurrent infections

The main source of PFAS on military bases is the use of aqueous film-forming foam, also known as AFFF. This fire suppressant, while very effective in putting out jet fuel and petroleum fires, is very dangerous, as once PFAS are released into the environment, they persist, since they are forever chemicals. If you or a family member who was stationed with you at a military base contaminated with PFAS develops Hodgkin’s disease, we strongly encourage you to contact our legal team, as we specialize in toxic exposure and may be able to recover fair compensation for your suffering.
