How is Zantac related to bladder cancer?
Zantac and other ranitidine products have been commonly prescribed drugs and considered safe for decades. Almost every other person in the USA has been taking this medicine, which was easily available in over-the-counter pharmacies.
However, the recent discovery of the presence of NDMA, a carcinogenic substance in Zantac has led to the recalling of this medication. It is associated with various forms of cancer, bladder cancer being the most common.
- The presence of NDMA in Zantac is reported as a possible outcome with ranitidine during the digestion process
- Small amounts of NDMA may accumulate in the body due to these reactions
- This leads to bladder cancer and other types of cancers
Common symptoms of bladder cancer
- Frequent urination
- Traces of blood in the urine
- Pain during urination
- Pain in the pelvic area

Go to a doctor right away if you experience any of these symptoms. Further, if you are diagnosed with bladder cancer and had been taking Zantac in the past then you have all the rights to pursue legal action against the manufacturers for their negligence.
