Liver cancer - PFAS exposure claims

Liver cancer - PFAS exposure claims video

Over 34,000 people in the US receive a liver cancer diagnosis every year. The disease is usually the result of the presence of risk factors such as cirrhosis, diabetes, excessive alcohol consumption, and fatty liver disease. However, liver cancer has recently been linked to exposure to PFAS currently present on more than 700 military sites throughout the country. Exposure to PFAS can lead to the development of liver cancer, particularly if it is prolonged. The main source of PFAS on military bases was aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF. If you were stationed at one or multiple military bases contaminated with PFAS and came to struggle with liver cancer, either as a member of the military or as a family member of one, please contact our law firm, as we might be able to recover financial compensation for you.

Exposure to PFOS can cause metabolic changes in the liver, which increases cancer risk

Liver cancer

The most common type of liver cancer is hepatocellular carcinoma, which begins in the primary cells of the liver, medically known as hepatocytes.

However, it is worthy of note that cancer that begins in the liver is rarer than cancer that spreads to the liver from another part of the body, such as the colon, lung, or breast. The majority of people with early-stage liver cancer do not experience symptoms.

Nevertheless, over time, while their disease progresses, they will experience some of the following symptoms, for which they need to seek medical attention as soon as possible:

  • upper abdominal pain
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • general weakness and fatigue
  • abdominal swelling
  • yellow discoloration of your skin
  • white, chalky stools
  • unexplained weight loss
  • loss of appetite

If you were stationed at a contaminated military base for at least one cumulative year and struggle with liver cancer, you might be entitled to financial compensation. The family members of veterans who lived at a military base might also be eligible to file a claim. Liver cancer has a latency of 12 years when it is caused by PFAS exposure.
