If you regularly used Zantac to treat your heartburn, GERD, or related health condition and have since been diagnosed with liver cancer, there may be a connection. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently pulled Zantac and other ranitidine medications from the market because of the connection between a contaminate found in the medications – NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine) – and a variety of cancers, including liver cancer.
Several national and international health organizations have deemed NDMA a probable carcinogen or cancer-causing agent. These organizations include all of the following:
If you were a Zantac user who has now developed cancer, there are several considerations that can help you determine if the two could be connected, including:
– You have developed stomach, kidney, liver, bladder, pancreatic, colon, breast, or testicular cancer (other kinds of cancer can also apply).
– You regularly took the Zantac – or other ranitidine product – for a period of at least 60 days.
– If your cancer diagnosis came six months or more after you quit taking the Zantac, you regularly took Zantac for at least one year prior to quitting.
If any of these apply to your situation, you owe it to yourself to consult with an experienced drug injury attorney.

Because early diagnosis is closely associated with improved prognosis, this makes liver cancer an even more serious disease. Those symptoms associated with the disease’s progression include:
If you or someone you love regularly took Zantac or another ranitidine product and later developed cancer, an experienced drug injury attorney may be able to help.
If you took Zantac regularly and have been diagnosed with liver cancer, holding the drug company accountable is important, and a dedicated drug injury lawyer can help. Obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled is the best path forward.
