Applying for VA Benefits: Proving Radar Emissions Caused Cancer

Question

Good day Jim, I have recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer at VA. I did not serve in Vietnam, however when I told the doctor that I worked as a radar mechanic for over 9 years he suggested that I apply for the VA prostate cancer disability program. What are my chances of being approved? Radar EM emissions are dangerous but I don't know if they apply to VA or not. Many thanks.
