According to him, the problems with breathing started in November, and it was confirmed at the end of December that he had a giant tumor.

- He was placed in hospital on January 1st, and the sample for biopsy was taken three days later. The diagnose is the hardest form of neoplasia - Hodgkin's lymphoma - Lacetti told "Novosti".

The mass closed all of the neck functions on January 13th and it started pressing his heart, and he started the chemo and radiation therapies after the biopsy. and the colonel reacted well to them, so the mass reduced by 95%.

- 5% of the tumor remains and now I am under control because the found mass in the tumor is literally "round ceramics", the result of radiation and high temperatures that develop in the explosion of a depleted uranium project, which is known to belong to nuclear technology - says Colonel Lacetti.

He adds that he has great problems with bones and that he has a hip prosthesis, including the problems with elbows and shoulders.

- I will have to have a surgery of the other hip and to get prosthesis - Lacceti said.

After a long judicial battle, the Court of Rome in 2009 recognized the status of a "victim of duty" to Lacetti, and the cause of it the long exposure to ionizing radiation, and he received a partial compensation in 2012.

It wasn't so easy with many other demands of sick soldiers of families of the victims, according to "Novosti". The founder of the Military observatory Domenico Legero published on March 29th, 2009 that there were 2.558 sick Italian soldiers who were exposed to depleted Uranium and that 171 of them died.

The first 30 million euros of compensations were paid to the victims of depleted uranium after nine years since the bombing of Kosovo and Metohija and numerous complaints to the courts and public protests/.

According to the latest data, since 1999, more than 359 have died and more than 4,000 Italian soldiers have been exposed to the depletion of uranium, among them a large number of those who were in Kosovo.

Corporal Giuseppe de Biazi (41), is the latest victim of cancer in the ranks of the Italian army, from which he suffered because he was exposed to the depletion of uranium. De Biazi stayed in Bosnia and Herzegovina (1999), in Kosovo (2003), in Afghanistan (2010) and in Lebanon (2012), according to "Novosti".
