Zantac Cancer Injury

Zantac and other antacid medications with ranitidine have been found to contain unsafe levels of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a type of nitrosamine. Nitrosamines are frequently used to produce tumors in the vital organs of lab rats. Ranitidine molecules in Zantac and similar generic medications generate NDMA due to chemical reactions during manufacturing, storage, and digestion. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there is strong evidence that NDMA causes cancer in humans. Intake of NDMA over extended periods is known to increase the risk of developing pancreatic cancer as well as kidney, lung, and liver tumors. Zantac and other ranitidine pharmaceutic manufacturers should be held liable for recklessly failing to warn consumers about the risks of cancer associated with NDMA. There are no reasonable justifications for manufacturers tolerating levels of NDMA Zantac dosages that are as high as 26,000 times greater than levels deemed to be safe in humans.

Why Are Biopsies Performed? Biopsies Performed

Your doctor may need a cell or tissue sample to help diagnose and identify your suspected cancer if you have been suffering from symptoms commonly associated with cancer. While imaging tests, such as X-rays and CT scans, can help detect problem areas, they are unable to distinguish cancerous cells from noncancerous cells. A biopsy is the most reliable method of diagnosing the majority of cancers. For instance, if a lump is found in a woman’s breast, a scan could verify it.

Nevertheless, the only way to determine whether the lump is breast cancer or a noncancerous condition would be to perform a biopsy. Biopsies are used to abstract a patient’s cells and tissue for further analysis. Although the idea of having a biopsy may sound frightening, most biopsies are relatively painless and low-risk procedures. Depending on the type and location of the suspected cancer, pieces of your tissue, skin, organ, or tumor may be removed and submitted to a lab for assessment. Residents of Albany, New York, and around the Capital Region have some of New York State’s finest hospitals, such as St. Peter’s Hospital, NYOH Albany Cancer Center and Samaritan Hospital – Albany Memorial Campus, for cancer diagnosis and treatment.



Most Common Types Of Biopsies

There are several different types of biopsies. Your doctor will select the necessary type of biopsy based on your underlying condition and the region of your body that needs to be further examined. The most common biopsy types used to detect cancer, include the following:

  1. Needle Biopsy: This type of biopsy is used to collect samples of skin or other tissue that can easily be retrieved underneath the skin. Core needle biopsies and fine-needle aspirations are the two most prevalent types of needle biopsies.
  2. Endoscopic Biopsy: During this procedure, an endoscope is used to take tissue samples inside the body from places such as the lungs, colon, or bladder.
  3. Bone Marrow Biopsy: These biopsies are often used to diagnose blood cancers, such as lymphoma, leukemia, and multiple myeloma. Samples of patients’ bone marrow are usually taken out of hipbones or other bones in their bodies using long needles.
  4. Skin Biopsy: If your skin has a lesion or rash which appears to be cancerous, a skin biopsy can be carried out to remove cells and diagnose your cancer.
  5. Surgical Biopsy: If the questionable cells cannot be retrieved using any other types of biopsies, your doctor may suggest a surgical biopsy. Surgical biopsies can be implemented to remove part of or the entire region of abnormal cells.
