Roundup Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Lawsuit

We have a dedicated team of lawyers determined to fight for you

All across the nation, hardworking Americans are developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 74,200 people in the United States will be diagnosed with NHL in 2019.

Sadly, about 19,970 people will die because of this disease this year.

The unfortunate reality is that many Americans have developed NHL because of another party’s negligence. For instance, certain corporations like Monsanto exposed many citizens – including their own workers – to toxic chemicals like Roundup that may have greatly increased the risk of developing the disease.

Our Roundup cancer lawsuit attorneys will help you try to uncover the cause of your illness, and if possible, we will help you fight back against the liable parties that have harmed you.

You do NOT have to suffer alone. We will be your voice.

What is Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of cancer that develops in the lymphatic system — the bodies disease-fighting network. In NHL, tumors begin to develop in a type of white blood cells known as lymphocytes.

Generally, these lymphocytes will die and new ones will be created to replace them. But for individuals suffering from NHL, these white blood cells do not die but instead continue to divide. This overabundance of white blood cells can have serious health consequences.

While non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer cells begin to form in your lymph nodes, they can also spread to other areas of the lymphatic system including lymphatic vessels, bone marrow, spleen, thymus, adenoids, or tonsils.

While the symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma will vary from person to person, some of the most common signs include:

  • Painless swelling of lymph nodes in the neck, groin, or underarm
  • Fever
  • Heavy night sweats
  • Tiredness
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Severe itchiness
  • Red patches on the skin
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Coughing or shortness of breath
  • Headaches
  • Cognitive issues (i.e. confusion, personality changes, concentration problems)

It is essential that you seek out medical attention if you notice that you or a loved one are suffering from any of these symptoms.

Generally, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is categorized into two groups:

  • Indolent Lymphomas: These cancers grow more slowly than aggressive lymphomas.
  • Aggressive Lymphomas: These types grow and spread quickly.

If you have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and believe that it is the result of another party’s negligence, then contact us at 713-230-2310 for a free consultation.

Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Caused by Roundup Exposure

Recently, studies have shown that consumers and workers across the United States have been put at great risk of developing NHL due to exposure to glyphosate, a human carcinogen used in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer products. The companies responsible for manufacturing this product put consumers in harm’s way, and regular exposure to these products has been connected to NHL and other lymphoma cancer subtypes including:

  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Hairy cell leukemia
  • Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia
  • Mantle cell lymphoma
  • Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma
  • Multiple myeloma

Treatment for these forms of cancer will cost an individual and their family over 100,000 annually on average. The physical and financial toll that it can take can have a devastating impact on so many people, and should never have happened if the companies responsible had prioritized the safety of the consumer over making a profit for their shareholders.

An experienced Roundup cancer attorney will have the skill and experience to hold these companies accountable for their actions and help patients and their families get justice.

Diagnosing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

When seeking diagnosis for NHL, you are likely to undergo several tests to confirm whether you are suffering from the disease.

Some of the procedures or tests you may undergo include but are not limited to:

  • Physical Examination: The physician treating you will check for swollen lymph nodes, including those on your neck, underarm, and groin. They will also check you for a swollen spleen or liver.
  • Blood Tests: Blood work helps to determine how certain bodily functions are working and whether there are any abnormalities in certain types of cells related to NHL.
  • Urine Tests: These tests help to uncover any infections.
  • Imaging Tests: Depending on what your physician recommends, you may undergo imaging tests including X-ray, MRI, CT, or positron emission tomography.
  • Bone Marrow Biopsy: This test consists of removing sample bone marrow to look for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cells.
  • Lymph node Testing: A biopsy may be required to remove all or part of a lymph node to test for NHL. The information provided in this testing can also help to determine the type and severity of the illness.

Depending on the results of these tests, a medical team – which may consist of oncologists, hematologists, radiologists, and other healthcare professionals – will notify you of the aggressiveness of your particular case by classifying it as stage I, II, III, or IV.

The stages are as follows:

  • Stage I: The cancer is relatively confined to one lymph-node region or close group.
  • Stage II: The cancer has begun to affect two lymph-node regions or an organ and nearby lymph nodes. At this stage, the cancer is still considered to be limited to a relatively confined area above or below the diaphragm.
  • Stage III: The cancer has spread out across regions below and above the diaphragm.
  • Stage IV: NHL cancer cells have spread to multiple organs, tissues, and are potentially affecting other organs or body parts, such as the liver or bones.

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma can be a very serious condition; the medical professionals helping you on your journey will provide you a timeline of treatment.
