CPAP Cancer Lawsuit Update in 2022 – File Your Claim HERE
Sleep apnea is thought to be caused by a confluence of factors, with most of them being lifestyle-related such as weight gain, smoking, and a stressful lifestyle and even lack of exercise. This is a condition which is characterized by the patient stopping breathing hundreds of times over the course of a night, which then causes cognitive issues the next day, fatigue, confusion as well as raised the risk of developing heart attack or stroke, or metabolic disease. Sleep apnea is on the rise, and many individuals don’t know that they have it, especially if they are unmarried or living alone. After proper diagnosis, one can opt to use a CPAP machine as they sleep which works by keeping one’s airway open, thereby facilitating proper respiration over the duration of a night. CPAP machines come in different variation and prices, but Philips seems to have cornered the market thanks to its So Clean machines which have been heavily marketed in the print and television and internet media over the years. However, despite the fact that these CPAP machines are very effective if used correctly, many individuals are now sounding the alarm after being diagnosed with various cancers after using CPAP machines for years. It is believed that these machines have a lining of a compound derived from plastic which has been shown to break down and its microscopic particles be inhaled by CPAP users, thereby setting off a cascade of dangerous health side-effects. If you used a CPAP machine and then were diagnosed with cancer, you may be eligible for substantial financial compensation, and we’re here to help with that.

How do CPAP Machines Cause Cancer?
The insides of many CPAP machines, especially those that are made by Philips are lined with material called PE-PUR foam, a form of plastic called polyurethane and polyethylene. For decades, these plastics have been known to not only be endocrine disruptors, but they have also been shown to be the cause of cellular changes that sets the stage for mutations, and finally, the development of cancer. PE-PUR foam has also been shown to cause severe inflammation which if sustained over a long period of time, leads to genetic changes which makes a person susceptible to cancer. PE-PUR foam found inside CPAP machine lining usually breaks down into very microscopic particles which then gets inhaled by the user, and builds up over time in different organs. Given the small size of these particles, their removal from the body is virtually impossible, making it easy for cancer and other illness to take root, albeit in a slow and insidious manner.
Here are some of the most common cancers associated with CPAP use:
- Pancreatic cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Breast cancer
- Lung cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Bone marrow cancer
- Stomach cancer
