Cancers Associated with Military Service
The VA has recognized certain cancers can be attributed to a veteran’s time in the military, especially if exposed to Agent Orange. Veterans serving in specific locations will be “presumed” to have been exposed. Cancers associated with Agent Orange exposure include cancers of the prostate, bladder, lung, and larynx, as well as certain blood cancers such as myeloma and lymphomas.
If you have been recently diagnosed with cancer, it’s important to research local cancer centers and cancer treatment options available in order to make an informed decision that is best for you and your family. With a few exceptions, your first treatment generally gives you the best chance for success. You are your best advocate.
