Who had bladder or prostate cancer secondary to AO exposure?

Rate this question



I'm trying to determine whether those Vietnam War era vets who qualify for AO benefits because of bladder or prostate cancer have either high grade cancer or low grade cancer (high grade being the type of cancer that tends to come back over time.). This is for an informal study I'm doing on Agent Orange.  I personally have bladder cancer following a tour of duty years ago (Da Nang, Class of '71) and my cancer is high grade.

You should be able to find good information here.  Yes, some cancers are presumptive under the pact act, look here for your's:

It looks like these are presumptive for AO:

Cancers caused by Agent Orange exposure

  • Bladder cancer
  • Chronic B-cell leukemia
  • Hodgkin’s disease
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Prostate cancer
  • Respiratory cancers (including lung cancer)
  • Some soft tissue sarcomas
    Note: We don’t include osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma, or mesothelioma on our list of presumptive conditions.

For AO I dont think it doesn't matters for the PACT Act. If you have it and were boots on the ground you are presumptive for AO meaning it shouldn't take that much to prove it. Let us hare at Hadit help you find your next step.

 I just went through a prostate biopsy last week. It come out clean thank you Jesus. Probably have to get a Roto Rooter done in a month or two.
