Prostate cancer is most commonly diagnosed among 9/11 responders and others who were affected by the toxins surrounding Ground Zero. This type of case tends to be among one of the highest victim compensation fund payouts, ranging between $200,000 to $250,000.
Recent studies have confirmed a direct link between the dust and fumes from 9/11 and the diagnosis of prostate cancer among survivors and first responders; first responders are among the most at-risk group. Often times, this cancer grows very slowly, and may never need treatment. However, many doctors recommend a conservative approach to treatment such as watchful waiting or active surveillance.
The following effective treatments are available to those with prostate cancer:
- Surgical techniques- Vinci robotic-assisted surgery
- Proton beam radiation
- Hormone therapy
- Drugs- angiogenesis inhibitors
