Bladder Cancer


Hi Jim, My question is about the new coverage for bladder cancer agent orange related. I had a non invasive non malignant tumor removed in 12-2020, then a reoccurrence of several more high grade non invasive tumors removed 5-2021 followed by a chemo treatment. VA has ruled I’m rated for 0% compensation for my benign tumor. Shouldn’t the surgeries and chemo fall under the 6 month total disability rating even in tumors that are non malignant? Thanks for your help.

I agree with your conclusion. Were I you I'd appeal all this with the help of an accredited veterans law attorney. Good luck.
