For years, Camp Lejeune in North Carolina has been home to one of the most contaminated military bases in the country. And now, factual data has proven that the water supply at the base may have contributed to a number of cases of prostate cancer.
A recent study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that men who had lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least a month were twice as likely to develop prostate cancer as those who had not.

According to the National Cancer Institute, prostate cancer will be diagnosed in about one out of every seven American men during their lifetime. This number is especially alarming when you consider the fact that prostate cancer can often be treated successfully if it is detected early. In this blog post, we will discuss some prostate cancer statistics as well as how contaminated water can increase your risk of developing the disease.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among American men, accounting for about one out of every seven cases. The disease is most often diagnosed in men over the age of 50, but it can occur in younger men as well. African-American men are at especially high risk for prostate cancer, with a lifetime risk of about one in five. The good news is that prostate cancer is often very treatable when detected early. In fact, the five-year survival rate for prostate cancer is nearly 100% when the disease is caught in its earliest stages.
There are many possible risk factors for prostate cancer, including family history, age, and race. However, one factor that is often overlooked is exposure to contaminated water. A number of studies have shown that men who drink water contaminated with certain chemicals are at increased risk for prostate cancer. If you or someone you love has been diagnosed or died from prostate cancer and they spent time at Camp Lejeune, call (866) 240-2414 for a free case evaluation. You may be entitled to significant compensation.
