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 Fayetville to the coast) for at least one (1) year.

The most recent results released by the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA) show that GenX is still present in the drinking water at 24 parts per trillion (ppt), which is well below the state’s health goal of 140 ppt.
While levels of GenX in the drinking water are declining, the concentrations already present in the environment continue to pose various risks, given that GenX is not biodegradable and has the potential to accumulate over time.
Since there is much that is still unknown about the long-term effects of GenX exposure, research is ongoing. However, some studies are more short-term in nature, and have provided telling results already.
