Liver cancer - PFAS exposure claims

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 to recover the financial compensation.

Claim Application

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 on a military base contaminated with PFAS, either alone or with your family members, you were inevitably exposed to these carcinogenic substances. For this reason, it is essential to keep a close eye on your health and look out for the symptoms of liver cancer. In the unfortunate event that you receive this diagnosis, please contact our law firm, and we will help you recover the financial compensation you are entitled to from the liable parties, whether you are a current or former member of the military or a family member of one.
