Camp Lejeune bile duct cancer claims

As part of the digestive system, the bile ducts are the tubes connecting the liver and gallbladder to the small bowel. The bile ducts carry bile, a fluid that helps to digest food by breaking down fat. Bile is made by the liver and is stored in the gallbladder. Roughly 8,000 people develop bile duct cancer every year across the country. Some of the risk factors for this disease are liver disease, parasitic infestation, biliary stones, and exposure to dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyls, and 1,2-dichloropropane. Because some of these harmful substances were present at Camp Lejeune during the last century, veterans and family members who spent time at the military base are now at high risk of developing bile duct cancer. The solvent dichloromethane might be a causative agent for bile duct cancer, according to medical studies.

Exposure to vinyl chloride also has a strong connection with the development of bile duct cancer. Nitrosamines, which result from various chemical reactions, are also carcinogens for biliary cancer, according to researchers. Furthermore, exposure to asbestos, polychlorinated biphenyls, and radon is also a risk factor for bile duct cancer. Some of these chemicals were present in the drinking water and environment of Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987, so if you lived there during this time, you should look out for the following symptoms, which might indicate bile duct cancer:

  • abdominal pain on the right side
  • yellowing of the skin and eyes
  • fever and night sweats
  • itchy skin and fatigue
