Causes of Bladder Cancer Surgery’s Sexual Side Effects in Men
Bladder cancer strikes near to most male sexual organs. Treatments for bladder cancer, such as radiation and surgery, can interfere with or damage the function of the organs within a man’s pelvic region. This damage often leads to numerous sexual side effects that can adversely affect a man’s self-esteem.
If you have taken the Type-2 diabetes drug Actos and have been diagnosed with bladder cancer, the two might be related. Actos has been shown to dangerously increase a person’s risk for developing bladder cancer. Contact an Actos lawsuit lawyer of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810 today. We can help you to pursue the financial compensation which you may be due from the pharmaceutical company.
Sexual Side Effects
The bladder’s proximity to important sexual organs makes treating bladder cancer while preserving a man’s sexual function exceptionally difficult. Invasive cancers may warrant the surgical removal of not only the bladder, but also other organs and anatomical structures, including, but not limited to the following:
- Seminal Vesicles
- Vas Deferens
- Part of the Urethra
These organs all play important roles to a man’s ability to become erect, maintain an erection, and achieve orgasm. Radiation therapy can also negatively affect these organs. The risk of these complications is one that many are likely to accept in order to attempt to resolve their bladder cancer. That does not mean, however, that they should not be considered in a legal action against the maker of Actos.
If your bladder cancer required surgical treatment and you are now suffering from sexual side effects, do not hesitate to seek legal counsel. For more information about an Actos lawsuit, contact Williams Kherkher at 800-641-9810 for dedicated and compassionate legal representation.
