Ovarian cancer - PFAS exposure claims

Every year, approximately 21,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer throughout the US, whereas nearly 14,000 lose their lives to this malignant disease. There are numerous causes for ovarian cancer, such as suffering from endometriosis, having no history of pregnancy, a family history of ovarian cancer, and obesity. Nevertheless, recent medical studies found a strong causal relation between exposure to PFAS, a group of toxic chemicals, and ovarian cancer. These dangerous fluorinated chemicals are currently lurking on more than 700 military sites in the country. If you lived at one of these military bases and came to struggle with ovarian cancer, please contact our law firm, as you might be entitled to financial compensation.

Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States. It is the deadliest cancer of the female reproductive system. The lifetime risk of receiving a diagnosis of ovarian cancer is 1 in 78, whereas the risk of losing your life to this awful disease is 1 in 108. It is worthy of note that approximately half of women with ovarian cancer are 63 or older. Furthermore, ovarian cancer is more common in Caucasian women than in African-American women. The following are the most common symptoms of ovarian cancer:

  • abdominal bloating or swelling
  • feeling full after eating a small meal
  • changes in bowel habits
  • a frequent need to urinate
  • discomfort in the pelvis area
  • unexplained weight loss
  • back pain
  • fatigue
  • persistent indigestion

The main source of PFAS on military bases is aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF, a fire suppressant used to put out jet fuel and petroleum fires by military firefighters and trainees. It was developed by the U.S. Navy along with the renowned 3M company in the 1960s. PFAS are forever chemicals, which means that once they are released into the environment, they persist. Similarly, once they reach the inside of the body through inhalation or ingestion, they remain there forever, being able to cause serious diseases such as ovarian cancer. If you were stationed at a contaminated military base with your husband or as a female member of the military and developed ovarian cancer, we advise you to reach out to our legal team, as we specialize in toxic exposure and may be able to recover financial compensation for your suffering.
