Are people still dealing with cancer as a result of being exposed near Chernobyl? What about today? Are people still coming down with cancers because of being close to the Ukraine? Or even somewhat close to Chernobyl?
I'm not sure about today, at least in terms of it being from the disaster. But if anyone is living near the area, they risk the chance or being exposed and in turn getting acute radiation sickness. Usually the cancers started fairly quickly, but I suppose some cancers could live dormant for a while and surface later on in life.
I suppose it could be possible. If there is still a lot of radiation around the area, it can collect in the rain and be brought to other areas, so it may be possible some people get cancer because of it. I wonder if there was a way to find that out.
Who's to say for sure. I suppose if you were born in the area during that time, and you got cancer later you could sue. But like everyone else said, I think most residents were paid for having to pack up and leave their lives. So they may say that money was for future issues as well.
