Ovarian cancer in human illustration

In April of 2020, popular heartburn drug Zantac was recalled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after multiple studies found that the medication may cause several different types of cancer. Some Zantac users have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and there is reason to believe that the cancer may have been caused by Zantac. If you or a loved one has found yourself in this tragic situation, you may have a case for an ovarian cancer Zantac lawsuit. You can learn more by discussing your family's situation with our experienced defective drug lawyers.

What Should I Do If I Think I Have Ovarian Cancer?

Cancer is treated most effectively when it's diagnosed early. If you're concerned that you may have ovarian cancer caused by Zantac, you should see a doctor immediately.

Regular women's health exams can also help detect ovarian cancer and other cancers as soon as possible.

If you've used Zantac in the past, these exams are even more important, as Zantac users may be at a higher risk of developing cancer.

Receiving quality medical care is obviously the first priority for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer. But if you have used Zantac in the past, you should also consider contacting an experienced defective drug lawyer to discuss your legal options.

There is reason to believe that some ovarian cancer cases may have been caused by Zantac. Our lawyers believe that the makers of Zantac may have been aware of cancer-causing agents in the heartburn drug, but ignored that information to preserve their profits.

Manufacturers of defective drugs must be held accountable for their carelessness. Contact our lawyers today to learn more about your legal rights, including whether you could have a case for a Zantac ovarian cancer claim against the drug's manufacturer.
