Zantac Stomach Cancer

Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

The heartburn medication that goes by the brand name of Zantac has been a popular and profitable drug for decades, but it’s been seeing a good deal of negative media attention. The Food and Drug Administration recently removed the drug from the market due to findings of contamination with NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine), which is considered a probable carcinogen or cancer-causing agent. One of the cancers associated with NDMA is stomach cancer.

Zantac Usage

People often turn to Zantac to treat their heartburn, acid reflux, Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), ulcers, and other related health concerns. In fact, many have relied upon Zantac for years to help with their acid-related discomfort and pain. Unfortunately, a side effect of such usage can be stomach cancer. You turn to a medication with a name you trust to find relief from what ails you, but when the medication itself causes harm, it can be especially difficult.

Stomach Cancer

The Mayo Clinic shares that stomach cancer generally takes hold in the mucus-producing cells that line our stomachs. The signs and symptoms that often accompany stomach cancer include:

  • Feeling bloated after meals
  • Feeling full after eating a small amount
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Constant, severe indigestion
  • Persistent, severe heartburn
  • Stomach pain
  • Persistent nausea with no explanation
  • Persistent vomiting
