Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma - PFAS exposure claims

Over 77,000 people are diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma every year throughout the US. Although the most common risk factors for this cancer are being elderly it can also be the result of PFAS exposure, chemicals that are currently lurking on more than 700 military sites. The primary source of PFAS, which are fluorinated chemicals, is aqueous film-forming foam, also known as AFFF, a fire suppressant used to put out fires stemming from jet fuel or petroleum. If you are a veteran or a family member of one who was stationed at a contaminated military base and struggle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm to recover the compensation you deserve for your suffering.

Claim Application

The lymphatic system is the network in your body that fights diseases. Because cancer can affect nearly any part of the body, the lymphatic system is, unfortunately, no exception. When non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma occurs, the malignant tumors develop in the lymphocytes, which are a type of white blood cells. This cancer is significantly more common than Hodgkin’s lymphoma, accounting for over 70% of cases. Nevertheless, lymphoma, regardless of the type, is responsible for only 4% of cancer cases throughout the country. There are over 30 subtypes of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It is crucial to timely recognize the symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, as this will lead to you receiving the treatment you need as early as possible, which will increase your life expectancy and improve your prognosis. The following are the most common symptoms of this cancer:

  • swollen lymph nodes in your neck, armpits, or groin
  • abdominal pain or swelling
  • chest pain, coughing, or trouble breathing
  • fatigue
  • fever
  • night sweats
  • unexplained weight loss
  • feeling full after eating a small amount of food
  • recurring infections

If you are a member of the military or a veteran and experience some of the above symptoms, please seek medical attention as soon as possible, as you may have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Similarly, if you were stationed with a member of the military at a military base contaminated with PFAS, we advise you to seek medical attention, as you are also at high risk of developing this health problem. However, because misdiagnosis is a frequent occurrence when it comes to cancer, it is recommended to see multiple specialists for a correct and accurate diagnosis. It is also important to mention that you were exposed to PFAS to your doctor when you go to your appointment, as there is a strong causal relation between this disease and exposure to fluorinated chemicals. In the regrettable case you receive a diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, please contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure and will help you recover the financial compensation you are entitled to.
