Bladder Cancer Prognoses

When a person is diagnosed with cancer, one of the first questions they often ask their doctors is how much time they have left to live. More technically, they should be asking for their prognosis, or what their chance of recovery is. Some cancers are easier to recover from than others, while some forms of cancer are incredibly deadly.

The prescription Type-2 diabetes medication Actos has been shown to increase a person’s risk of developing bladder cancer. People who have taken Actos as directed for longer than a year have a substantially higher risk of showing bladder cancer than the rest of the population.

If you have been diagnosed with bladder cancer after taking Actos, the two may be related. The Actos lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher can help you receive compensation for medical costs and other related expenses from the drug’s creator and manufacturer, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company.

Factors of a Bladder Cancer Prognosis

Bladder cancer, like any other cancer, is a life-threatening affliction.

A patient’s chance of surviving bladder cancer varies on numerous factors including:

  • The stage of the cancer
  • The type of cancer cells
  • The patient’s age
  • The patient’s overall health

As a rule, the more advanced the cancer is, the lower a patient’s chance of survival. Over 80% of stage IV bladder cancer patients lose their lives. Alternatively, stage I and II bladder cancer patients survive almost 90% of the time. If you are worried you may have bladder cancer, you should seek a medical evaluation immediately.
