Social Security Disability Benefits and Bone Cancer – Know Your Rights
Did you know that each year more than 2,000 people are diagnosed with bone cancer?
Bone cancer begins in your bones and unfortunately can spread. One of the most common symptoms of bone cancer includes pain, unintended weight loss, fever and chills, night sweats, fatigue, weakened bones that may lead to fractures.
A recent example of these symptoms is a golfer that was golfing and in the middle of his swing, his forearm broke. Diagnostic studies showed that he had bone cancer, which led to his fracture. Fortunately, he was able to receive treatment and is on the road to recovery. If your doctor diagnosed you with having bone cancer and told you that you were unable to work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.
Certain cancers are eligible for an expedited processing by the Social Security Disability administration. If your Social Security Disability application or appeal was denied, contact bone cancer Social Security Disability attorneys at the Law Office of Nancy L. Cavey today.
