A Veteran’s Story: From Vietnam to Biopsy
Len is one of many veterans who faced a prostate cancer diagnosis following his time in service. Research now shows a connection between exposure to Agent Orange (a herbicide used during the Vietnam War) and the development of aggressive prostate cancer. Veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange have a 52 percent increase in overall risk of prostate cancer detection and a 75 percent increased risk of developing life-threatening prostate cancer.1
