Lawyers for Follicular Lymphoma from Roundup Exposure
Follicular lymphoma is a sub-type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), and is one of the more common forms of cancer that may be caused by exposure to Roundup weedkillers.
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing Roundup follicular lymphoma lawsuits for individuals and families throughout the United States, as it appears that Monsanto failed to provide adequate warnings for farmers, agricultural workers and others exposed to large amounts of the controversial weed killer.
All follicular lymphoma cases are being reviewed by our law firm under a contingency fee agreement, which means that there are no out-of-pocket costs to hire our lawyers and we only receive an attorney fee or expenses if a settlement or recovery is obtained.

Follicular Lymphoma Side Effects from Roundup
Follicular lymphoma is considered a form of B-Cell lymphoma, and typically accounts for between 20% to 30% of all cases of non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) diagnosed.
It is an indolent, or slow-growing, form of non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL). However, if left untreated it can become what is known as a transformed lymphoma and quickly become far more aggressive.
Roundup is one of the most widely used weedkillers in the world, which has been sold by Monsanto for years as safe for humans. However, increasing research suggests that users may face an increased risk of non-Hodgkins lymphoma from Roundup, often involving a specific diagnosis of follicular lymphoma.
In early 2015, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) warned that Roundup and other weedkillers containing glyphosate are probably carcinogens. This raises serious questions about why Monsanto failed to warn about the follicular lymphoma risk, or provide adequate instructions to minimize exposure.

Following a diagnosis of follicular lymphoma, it may not be immediately recognized by individuals and family members that Roundup may have caused the cancer. In some cases, doctors take a “watch and wait” approach to see what the sometimes unpredictable caner will do before treatment, which is often difficult due to its tenacity. Options may include chemotherapy, radiation and monoclonal antibody drugs, such as Rituxan.
Even after treatment sends follicular B cell lymphoma into remission, it may return later in life, posing long-term side effects. Therefore, individuals diagnosed must remain vigilant for the rest of their lives.
In about 30% to 40% of follicular lymphoma cases, the cancer becomes what is known as a transformed lymphoma. At this point, the cancer becomes much more aggressive, which could lead to stage 3 follicular lymphoma as it rapidly spreads to other parts of the body.
In these cases, treatment often involves high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplant to send it into remission. There is still the chance that it will return later, requiring more harsh cancer treatments.
