Benzene is classified as a human carcinogen, a substance that could potentially cause cancer depending on the level and extent of exposure. Benzene is found everywhere in the environment. Humans around the world have daily exposures indoors and outdoors from multiple sources. People can also be exposed to benzene in gasoline fumes, auto exhaust, glue, solvents, paints, cigarette smoke, and more.  Benzene can be absorbed, to varying degrees, by inhalation, through the skin, and orally.

Long-term Benzene exposure, even in low doses, has been linked to leukemia, as well as other cancers, and blood disorders.  Healthcare providers may discover leukemia when patients begin showing signs of anemia, excessive bleeding, and even increased rate of infections.


When sunscreen containing benzene is applied to the skin, the body absorbs it and the chemical enters the bloodstream, where it can cause cancer. That benzene exposure has been linked to

  • Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)

  • Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML)

  • Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL)

  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

  • Hairy Cell Leukemia

  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma

  • Multiple Myeloma

  • Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)

  • Aplastic Anemia
