| | Gliobastoma multiforme brain tumor
I am a widowed spouse of a Viet Nam veteran. Last May (2009) he was diagnosed with a right frontal lobe tumor. Following CT scans and MRI's it was determined to be a gliobastoma tumor. He received steriods for a week to reduce the swelling in his brain and ultimately had a craniotomy. Now 10 months later he has died and the death certificate (signed by a VA Dr.) states that primary cause was the tumor with secondary contributor being Type 2 diabetes. He was exposed to Agent Orange and was receiving a SMALL compensation from VA for the diabetes as related to Agent Orange exposure. My question is, does anyone know where I can find any information relating to Agent Orange and brain cancer. Or, does anyone know who to contact to find anything on this. The VA doc naturally denied that this brain tumor/cancer was caused by Agent Orange. Thanks for any help!!!
