Rochester Zantac Injury
Contact Jed Dietrich, Esq., a Member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Premier Lawyers of America, if You Were Diagnosed with Cancer After Taking Zantac in Rochester, New York.
On April 1, 2020, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) ordered that the heartburn medication commonly known as Zantac be withdrawn from the market immediately. The FDA’s announcement was a necessary precautionary measure to protect the general public. Zantac and other generic forms of ranitidine contain the carcinogenic contaminant NDMA (N-nitrosodimethylamine). Since the 1980s, numerous investigations have shown a strong correlation between the contaminate NDMA in Zantac and cancer. High amounts of NDMA could cause the development of many different cancers, such as: colorectal, esophageal, stomach, kidney, liver, testicular, bladder, prostate, uterine, intestinal, ovarian, esophageal, thyroid, lung, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and leukemia. Sanofi, the pharmaceutical giant that manufactures Zantac, concealed the drug’s association with cancer from millions of innocent victims who used Zantac to relieve symptoms of gastric ulcers, heartburn, acid reflux, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and various other health problems.

Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be a terrifying experience; it is vital to make sure that you get the best treatment possible as soon as possible. General practitioners typically refer patients believed to have cancer to oncologists, physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating people with cancer. Oncologists can identify and diagnose cancer using biopsies, X-rays, MRIs, PETs, CTs, endoscopies, ultrasounds, and other radiological procedures. Additionally, blood tests, tumor markers, and nuclear medicine imaging are used for further analysis.
If you were diagnosed with cancer, your oncologist will implement a treatment plan based on your pathology reports which detail the type of cancer you are suffering from. Pathology reports also tell the specialist the areas of your body that are affected, what stage you are in, and how fast the cancer could spread. Finding a first-rate oncologist is extremely important for your treatment. An ideal place to start is by consulting with your primary care doctor for recommendations. Another option would be to find a hospital you trust, such as Strong Memorial Hospital, Highland Hospital, or Rochester General Hospital, and then determine which oncologists are affiliated with that hospital.
You may have a legal right to compensation if you, or a loved one, were diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac or any generic medications containing ranitidine. It is crucial that you hire an experienced attorney to help hold the responsible pharmaceutical company liable for your illness. We highly recommend contacting Jed Dietrich, Esq. and his top rated team of Rochester, New York Zantac cancer injury attorneys at the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. to learn more about your legal rights.What Type of Oncologist Should You see?
Most oncologists use an aggressive combination of therapies to help treat your cancer. During your medical care, it is not uncommon to receive treatment from several different kinds of oncologists. The three main types of oncologists are:
- Medical Oncologists: These specialists use various biological therapies, hormonal therapies, chemotherapies, and other targeted cancer treatments. Medical oncologists assist their patients in monitoring and handling side effects as well as conducting follow up procedures.
- Radiation Oncologists: Over half of all cancer patients are treated with radiation. Radiation oncologists target and eliminate cancerous cells through the use of high-energy photon beams.
- Surgical Oncologists: Patients often see these specialists first when their primary care doctor suspects that they may have cancer. Surgical oncologists are known for performing biopsies, as well as surgeries to remove tumors and surrounding tissues.
