I was a heavy popper user for about 15 years.
Two years ago I was diagnosed with a cancer called Multiple Myeloma. It's a cancer specifically linked to people working in the chemical industry.
I have always worked outdoors in fresh air.
I definitely link my cancer to the use of poppers.
I am not trying to tell you to stop using poppers just be aware that they can cause serious health problems.

According to what I read "The cause of multiple myeloma is not known" I recall there was a period when it was falsely claimed that Kaposi's sarcoma was caused by poppers, it was not of course. When you say heavy user, what does that mean please? Best X

Were you using isobutyl?

Multiple research has shown that poppers is carcinogenic and it significantly lowers your immune system for a while after usage. I used to get lung infections every time after a heavy popperbate session. Sometimes I wish I never discovered the pleasure of popperbating.

No research has shown any such thing! Poppers do not equal isobutyl nitrite. There are other formulations like pentyl nitrite (aka amyl) etc which are daily used in medicinal practice. Isobutyl nitrite is listed by some US states as a carcinogen in the industrial workplace (California I think) and it is banned in Europe. You may find that the French just recently banned it, not sure. In any case the evidence is sketchy and poppers containing isobutyl nitrite continue to be sold in the USA, but for cleaning purposes, video head and not circuits etc.

Scaremongering like this is stupid. Lung infections are caused when the membranes are irritated and bacterial growth is encouraged. Nothing to do with this debunked immune deficiency nonsense or cancer.

I see this is a very old post. I recently was also diagnosed with multiple myeloma. I have been a popper user for many years. Probably 3-4 times a week maybe more. When I got the diagnosis, I immediately thought of popper use. When I asked my dr what causes this he said he said not sure but it could be triggered by a chemical. So it may have been the poppers but I dont see any data linking poppers to myeloma on the web.
Im tearing myself up thinking I did this to myself. So I give you some advice here and say dont use them.

I was diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer stage 4 (terminal) in sept 2019

I was not a smoker. The symptoms were a persistent cough over many months Which my Dr treated with antibiotics. It was only after a scan that the tumor (and two litres of fluid) could be seen. The fluid was removed by makings a hole in my back. It was shocking, I just thought I had a chest information

I never admitted to anyone that I was a heavy user of poppers. Sniffing the stuff regularly for a high. I used to love the high but hated the phlegm it created and the breathless and wheezing etc.
I'm not an expert but I do believe that the cancer was caused by the poppers. I think I over used over many years. That's my opinion.
I now am receiving targeted therapy treatment (alectinib) which is shrinking the tumor. There is no cure it is at stage 4 but I am pleased to say that the cancer has retreated a little.
If the tumor was discovered sooner they might have been able to operate and cure.

If you are a heavy popper user I highly recommend you invest in a scan of the chest as a precaution.
