MRI of brain tumors

Over the course of the past few years, various studies have discovered a link between the usage of popular heartburn drug Zantac and diagnoses of several forms of cancer, including brain cancer. Our defective drug lawyers are seeking to help anyone who has been diagnosed with brain cancer or another form of cancer after longterm usage of Zantac. If you or a loved one is a current or former Zantac user with cancer, consider contacting us today to learn more about your legal rights - including a possible cancer lawsuit against the makers of Zantac.

Can Zantac Cause Brain Tumors?

Yes, the use of Zantac (ranitidine) has been linked to multiple forms of cancer, including cancerous brain tumors. Scientists believe that these cancers may be caused by longterm exposure to a chemical called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which is found in Zantac.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a brain tumor and have also used Zantac or another form of ranitidine, it's possible that your tumor was caused by the heartburn drug. If so, you may have the right to take legal action by filing a lawsuit against a ranitidine manufacturer, such as Sanofi, Novartis, or GlaxoSmithKline.

What Are the First Signs of a Brain Tumor?

If you suspect that you may have a brain tumor, you should contact your doctor as soon as possible. Some of the most common signs and symptoms of a brain tumor include:

If you have any of these symptoms and are concerned that they could be an indication of a brain tumor, we highly advise making a doctor's appointment as soon as you can.
