The 8 Diseases Associated With Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
There are eight presumptive conditions that are linked to Camp Lejeune Contaminated water. The Veterans administration would not acknowledge that all of the diseases linked to the Camp Lejeune toxic water were presumptively caused by the water. Rather, the VA listed only eight diseases presumed to be linked to the tainted water at the Marine Base.
Presumptive conditions caused by Camp lejeune toxic water:
- Adult leukemia
- Aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Liver cancer
- Multiple myeloma
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Parkinson’s disease
*This post was updated on June 10th, 2023 by a lawyer to provide Camp Lejeune victims the most current information about presumptive conditions linked to the Camp lejeune water.
Thousands of marines and veterans were diagnosed with debilitating diseases and conditions linked to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune . Camp Lejeune had grave issues with hazardous drinking and bathing water that lead to cancers and other conditions. Over time, significant medical evidence is being released to the public illustrating the severe conditions caused by the drinking and bathing water at Lejeune. A notable number of former marines have recieved the devastating diagnosis of a presumptive condition. Liver cancer, breast cancer, bladder cancer,kidney cancer, and lung cancer are some of the most common cancers linked to the Camp lejeune water.
Adult Leukemia linked to Camp Lejeune Contaminated Water
Pursuant to United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), research has established that that water contaminants located in the Camp Lejeune water caused adult leukemia as well as other diseases. Leukemia is a type of cancer of the human body’s blood-forming tissues. This includes the bone marrow as well as the lymphatic system. There are numerous different types of leukemia. Leukemia normally involves the white blood cells. White blood cells are very effective fighters of infection. Victims with leukemia have bone marrow which makes way too much atypical white blood cells. These white blood cells do not operate correctly. Leukemia treatment is often complicated.
Adult leukemia is prevalent among adults between the age of 55 to 64 years old. However, victims can get adult leukemia at any age. The causes of leukemia are not usually known. There are numerous risk factors known to cause leukemia. Exposure to particular chemicals, can lead to adult Leukemia.
Some Symptoms of adult leukemia are:
- pale skin,
Aplastic Anemia and Other Myelodysplastic Syndromes
Our attorneys estimate that Camp Lejeune claims for aplastic anemia will be settled for a range between $400,000 and $500,000, or more. Our lawyers have evaluated this disease looking at settlements and verdicts in previous mass tort lawsuits. Aplastic anemia is a disease that the government has conclusively determined that it was caused by toxic water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. Our law firm is intaking claims from victims who either lived or worked at the Marine Base and who were diagnosed with aplastic anemia or other comparable conditions.
“When you have the rare but treatable disorder known as aplastic anemia, your marrow — the spongy stuff inside your bones — stops making new blood cells. Sometimes it stops making just one type, but more often you become low on all three: red and white cells, and platelets. It can develop slowly or come on suddenly. If your blood count gets low enough, it can be life threatening.” Webmd
Camp lejeune – Bladder Cancer
Bladder cancer is a “presumptive” condition caused by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. If you were living or working at Camp Lejeune Marine Base in North Carolina between August 1953 and December 1987, you could have been wrongfully exposed to toxic water supply that may have led to bladder cancer. If you or a deceased family member were diagnosed with bladder cancer and otherwise qualify, you may be able to get lucrative compensation of up to a million dollars or more by way of a Camp Lejeune lawsuit.
“Bladder cancer is a common type of cancer that begins in the cells of the bladder. The bladder is a hollow muscular organ in your lower abdomen that stores urine. Bladder cancer most often begins in the cells (urothelial cells) that line the inside of your bladder. Urothelial cells are also found in your kidneys and the tubes (ureters) that connect the kidneys to the bladder. Urothelial cancer can happen in the kidneys and ureters, too, but it’s much more common in the bladder.” Mayo clinic
Kidney Cancer and Camp Lejeune contaminated water
Veterans, their family and others who lived, worked or were stationed at Camp Lejeune Marine Base in North Carolina are at a much higher risk of developing kidney cancer. This is as a result of exposure to toxic water for drinking and bathing at Camp Lejeune Marine Base in North Carolina. Victims at Camp Lejeune who were diagnosed with kidney cancer and meet other qualifications are entitled to pursue a claim for lucrative compensation. Camp Lejeune settlement amounts for Kidney Cancer are expected to be well over 500,000 and perhaps a million or more.
“Kidney cancer is cancer that begins in the kidneys. Your kidneys are two bean-shaped organs, each about the size of your fist. They’re located behind your abdominal organs, with one kidney on each side of your spine. bIn adults, renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer. Other less common types of kidney cancer can occur. Young children are more likely to develop a kind of kidney cancer called Wilms’ tumor. The incidence of kidney cancer seems to be increasing. One reason for this may be the fact that imaging techniques such as computerized tomography (CT) scans are being used more often. These tests may lead to the accidental discovery of more kidney cancers. Kidney cancer is often discovered at an early stage, when the cancer is small and confined to the kidney. Mayo Clinic
Liver Cancer linked to Camp lejeune water
Liver Cancer linked to Vinyl Chloride Liver cancer as well as fatty liver disease are serious medical conditions that were conclusively linked to toxic h2o at Camp Lejeune. It is well known that extreme amounts of vinyl chloride were located in Camp Lejeune contaminated water. It has been known for a long time, well before anyone considered a Camp Lejeune lawsuit, that vinyl chloride and liver cancer were linked. This has been established by medical literature.
“Liver cancer is cancer that begins in the cells of your liver. Your liver is a football-sized organ that sits in the upper right portion of your abdomen, beneath your diaphragm and above your stomach. Several types of cancer can form in the liver. The most common type of liver cancer is hepatocellular carcinoma, which begins in the main type of liver cell (hepatocyte). Other types of liver cancer, such as intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and hepatoblastoma, are much less common.
Cancer that spreads to the liver is more common than cancer that begins in the liver cells. Cancer that begins in another area of the body — such as the colon, lung or breast — and then spreads to the liver is called metastatic cancer rather than liver cancer. This type of cancer is named after the organ in which it began — such as metastatic colon cancer to describe cancer that begins in the colon and spreads to the liver.” Mayo clinic
Multiple Myeloma linked to Camp lejeune water
Estimated Camp Lejeune Multiple Myeloma Settlement Amounts? It is a bit early to know what projected settlements will be for Multiple Myeloma caused by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. Multiple Myeloma payouts can be estimated looking at numerous factors including age, loss of consortium, lost income, medical bills and pain and suffering.
Our Camp lejeune lawyers can estimate the possible settlement value of Camp Lejeune multiple myeloma lawsuits. Our attorneys looked at Multiple myeloma in prior mass tort cases. We estimate that Camp Lejeune multiple Myeloma claims payouts, pursuant to the CLJA, will have an average settlement amount between $400,000 to $600,000.
Is multiple myeloma caused by Camp Lejeune water?
Definitely. Greater rates of multiple myeloma were linked to water exposure at Camp Lejeune. People who lived and worked at Camp Lejeune had a much higher rate of multiple myeloma compared to people who were not at Camp Lejeune.
Camp Lejeune and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
Is Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma caused by Camp Lejeune contaminated water? Soldiers, residents and civilian contractors at Camp Lejeune Marine Base could have developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma from contaminated chemicals in the drinking water during over a 30 year period. Thanks to the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, contaminated water victims can now pursue Camp Lejeune Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma claims against the United States and obtain lucrative compensation for the harm the water caused. Our lawyers are helping Camp Lejeune Non–Hodkin’s Lymphoma lawsuits in the entire United states.
Scientist have concluded that certain toxic chemical are linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma at a substantially higher rate as opposed to other people who did not serve at Camp Lejeune. TCE, which was found in Camp Lejeune water, has been long known to cause Lymphoma.
Is Parkinson’s Disease linked to Camp Lejeune water?
This page will evaluate the evidence linking Parkinson’s disease to the water at the Marine Base. Victims should receivee lucrative settlement amounts for a Camp Lejeune Parkinson’s disease lawsuit. If you suffer as a result of Parkinson’s and were at Camp Lejeune for over 30 days at between 1953 to 1987, contact us to start the Camp lejeune water claims settlement process.
Toxic Water Causes Parkinson’s Disease
Our Camp Lejeune lawyers strongly believe that the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune caused tens of thousands of victims to develop Parkinson’s disease. The Camp Lejeune water supply was definitely polluted with very high amounts of industrial solvents for 30 plus years from 1953 to 1988.
Research Links toxic water to Parkinson’s Disease
Research has concluded that Parkinson’s disease is caused by exposure to the contaminated drinking water at Camp Lejeune. Parkinson’s disease is a type of neurological disorder that interferes with a victim’s movement. Parkinson’s disease is a very prevalent neurological disorder. There are numerous symptoms including:
- slow movements..

- Breast cancer
- Lung cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Neurobehavioral effects
- Renal toxicity
