Agent Orange And Tonsil Cancer


Lawyer4Vet

Question

Hi All:

When I Googled this topic I found a current thread in these forums regarding VA claims for service-connected tonsil cancer due to in-country expoure to Agent Orange dioxin. After going to that thread via Google, I was unable to reply to any post because it said it was "read only," even though there were recent posts. I've not been able to find that thread via HadIt.com.

I first began representing a Viet Nam vet for this claim when I was just a student in law school. It has taken nearly 16 years, that's right -- 16 years, and a successful appeal to the Court of Veterans Claims, but the veteran's widow and children have now established service connection for the the veteran's tonsil cancer and they will now get all the benefits they are entitled to.

I want to share my experience with this type of claim with other vets who have such a claim. If someone out there can direct me as to how I can access the thread regarding tonsil cancer and AO so that I can post there, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Congratulations on the win, Lawyer4Vet .

Here is the Agent Orange Tonsil Cancer thread you asked about. I'll try to pull it up to the top for you. Originated Dec. 30, 2008, you will find it here:

hadit.com Veterans Forum > General VA Claims Questions & Information > (VA Claims Research) Veterans Affairs Claims and Benefits Research How did you win the claim? When did you win it? What kind of tonsil cancer did the vet have? I have an Agent Orange claim for a metastatic squamous cell carcinoma involving the tonsil. I'm just waiting for the denial letter, so I can file a NOD.

Well, Lawyer4Vet , just like Pompeii, the original Agent Orange topic I resurrected for you, has now sunk two or three layers down. I see Cavman has joined us, excellent. This is the best place for your AO topic anyway. It originated in a "General VA Claims....topic section. Please tell us more about your win.
