AFFF Foam Cancer Lawsuit Lawyers
Have you been exposed to AFFF foam? Also known as Aqueous Film Forming Foam or “firefighting foam,” AFFF foam is a firefighting suppressant often used by firefighters at airports to extinguish high-temperature fires, often those involving jet fuel or petroleum-based accelerants. AFFF foam contains harmful chemicals that may cause cancer.
If you’ve been exposed to AFFF foam as a firefighter (civilian or military), airport worker, or property owner and diagnosed with kidney or testicular cancer, AFFF firefighting foam may be responsible — and you may be entitled to significant financial compensation.
Property owners with land nearby airports or military facilities may also be affected if AFFF runoff has contaminated their water supply.
We believe Justice Counts and are committed to holding potentially negligent companies and manufacturers like 3M and Dupont responsible.

AFFF Foam Cancer Risk
AFFF has been used for more than 50 years in the United States. This firefighting foam has proven very effective at suppressing fires, but serious health risks are well-established.
Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) contains the chemicals perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS). These chemicals belong to a class of substances known as per- and polyfluoroalkyls (PFAS).
PFAS chemicals are known as “forever chemicals” because scientific research has indicated that once present in the body or environment, they last for an extremely long duration.
PFAS chemicals — such as those found in AFFF foam — are also known carcinogens, meaning they can cause cancer.
A recent study found that some firefighters have levels of PFAS in their blood roughly “three times higher” than the general population. Another study revealed significantly higher levels of PFAS chemicals in firefighters, as well.
PFAS as found in firefighting foam may cause the following types of cancers:
- Kidney cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Non-Hodgkins lymphoma
- Other types of lymphomas
- Pancreatic cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Neuroendocrine tumors
- Prostate cancer
- Breast cancer
- Liver cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- And potentially others…
If you or a loved one has been exposed to AFFF foam (firefighting foam) and been diagnosed with kidney or testicular cancer, you deserve justice — and you may be entitled to compensation.
