Zantac Intestinal Cancer

Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

 Zantac and other ranitidine medications have been determined to contain the dangerous contaminant NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine), which is widely deemed a probable carcinogen (cancer-causing agent). Further, the instability of the ranitidine molecule in these medications may contribute to the production of increased levels of NDMA in the body. One of the cancers associated with elevated levels of NDMA is intestinal cancer.

The Symptoms of Intestinal Cancer

According to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, intestinal cancer involves tumors in the small intestine that can block and otherwise hinder the digestion process. As a tumor grows, pain can result. Common symptoms associated with intestinal cancer include:

  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Pain in the abdomen
  • Bloody or tarry stools (the result of bleeding tumors)
  • Fatigue and/or weakness (which is sometimes caused by a slowly bleeding tumor that leads to anemia)
  • A noticeable protrusion in the abdomen

Because the associated symptoms can be quite vague, Intestinal cancer is often difficult to diagnose, which also makes obtaining the necessary treatment more precarious. If you’ve been a regular Zantac user and develop any of the symptoms listed – or have any other related health concerns – it’s in your best interest to seek medical attention.
