Just a reminder - Veterans' Diseases Associated with Agent Orange

VA assumes that certain diseases can be related to a Veteran's qualifying military service. We call these "presumptive diseases."
VA has recognized certain cancers and other health problems as presumptive diseases associated with exposure to Agent Orange or other herbicides during military service. Veterans and their survivors may be eligible for benefits for these diseases.

             Chronic B-cell Leukemias
             Chloracne (or similar acneform disease)
             Diabetes Mellitus Type 2
             Hodgkin's Disease
             Ischemic Heart Disease
             Multiple Myeloma
             Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
             Parkinson's Disease
             Peripheral Neuropathy, Early-Onset
             Porphyria Cutanea Tarda
             Prostate Cancer
             Respiratory Cancers (includes lung cancer)
             Soft Tissue Sarcomas (other than osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, Kaposi's sarcoma, or mesothelioma)
