Anyone know of body cameras causing cancer cause I now have cancer in my chest cavity

Post by Halpern118 »

Hi all,

I’m an officer in south Jersey and recently got diagnosed with a large cancer mass in my chest. I’m only 38 years old and was very healthy. My department was one of the first in NJ to wear BWCs 7 years ago. I wonder if this is correlated. I don’t have history of cancer in my family, I don’t smoke and only drink socially. I’m seeing if I’m alone in this or maybe just one of the first cases.

Sorry to hear brother. Prayers for a swift and speedy recovery.

Lots of stuff puts us at high risk of cancers, including ancient rotating shifts if your department still does that. As for body cameras, I doubt there’s any resources or substantial evidence on it. You might be the first.

Talk to your oncologist and doctors about it. Maybe they would have more insight.

Please reach out if you need any help.
