I read a discussion on Vietnam Veterans diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the VA denying pancreatic cancer was caused by Agent Orange.  Anyone have recent news?  My brother is in same situation.  He's now in Hospice care but he is soldiering onward.

A couple guys mentioned Agent Orange and renal cancer and applying for VA compensation about 4 years ago on this web site. One was kind enough to post the court hearing where the judge ruled in his favor. We are certain that my husband's RCC came from that exposure in Viet Nam. You can find similar posts by googling for them.

My husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last September. He served in Vietnam 69 and 70. We have filed a claim but have not received a decision. Pancreatic cancer is not one of the presumtive diseases that are approved; however, a few cases have been won from what I read, mostly those that are associated with diabetes. Hopefully, your brother filed a claim for the record and who knows maybe the Veteran's Administration will do what is right by these soldiers. They list diabetes as a presumtive disease, which means that Agent Orange does effect the pancrease. Chemicals are secreted through the pancrease. Not sure why or how they can deny it.
