We Are Currently Investigating Certain Cancers Associated With GenX Exposures In North Carolina
The Law Offices of Thomas J. Lamb in Wilmington, North Carolina has many years of experience representing people who have been injured by chemical exposures and toxic substances, or the families of those who have died. At the present time there are various uncertainties surrounding these possible cancer cases due to GenX in drinking water:
- Does exposure to GenX in drinking water cause cancer?
- How much exposure to GenX is needed to cause cancer?
- How long after one is exposed to GenX could a cancer develop?
- What specific types of cancer might GenX cause in humans?
Given the current situation, please understand that we are only investigating cases where a person was diagnosed in or after 2010 with one of the following cancers:
- Kidney cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
In addition, during the period of time starting in 2009 up until the date of their cancer diagnosis, the person must have lived in Southeastern North Carolina (from Fayetteville to the coast) for at least one (1) year.

Chemours has been under scrutiny for quite some time now due to water pollution. A January Fayetteville Observer article, “State extends comment deadline to alleviate GenX contamination“, informs us of how Chemours plans to solve the pollution issues they caused. In the Summer of 2017, their plant in Bladen County by Cape Fear River and Cumberland County line had released perfluoroalkyl & polyfluoroalkyl substances, specifically GenX, into the river and then nearby drinking wells.
In efforts to eradicate the pollution problem, Chemours has ended PFAS discharge and installed equipment to cut 99% of the air emissions. They are also supplying bottled water to residents.
On December 31, 2019, Chemours gave the state a document called a corrective action plant to outline how they will control the emissions. The public originally had till February 5, 2020, to give feedback to state regulators on Chemours’ plan, but the NCDEQ pushed out the deadline to March 6, 2020, because two Cumberland County legislators who represent the contaminated area requested the extension.
