Q206: I am a Vietnam Veteran. I am currently receiving disability benefits for exposure to Agent Orange. This year I was diagnosed as having squamous cell carcinoma on my right hip. The VA Dermatology Department performed a procedure to remove the cancer. I have a follow up next year to determine if the procedure was successful. My question: Does this cancer fall under the guidelines of the VA and eligible for compensation? While I was in Vietnam the "locals" took our uniforms off base to launder them. Is there a possibility that the uniforms could have been laundered under Agent Orange contaminated conditions? Is there any literature out there that answers this question?
