Treating Bladder Cancer
If found in its early stages, bladder cancer can actually be treated fairly easily, and complete cures are common in the United States. There are many different things that can contribute to the development of bladder cancer, and recently, some instances of bladder cancer were connected to use of the Type 2 diabetes medication Actos. Sadly, although marketed as a safe and effective alternative to other dangerous diabetes drugs, like Avandia, Actos has turned out to have some incredibly dangerous side effects.
Bladder cancer can be life-threatening, and victims should seek treatment immediately. If you or a loved one took Actos to treat type 2 diabetes and later developed bladder cancer, contact the experienced Actos lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-641-9810.
Bladder Cancer Treatment Options
Depending on the stage of bladder cancer that a person is in when the cancer is detected, symptoms and treatment options vary. If there is a tumor present, it will have to be removed, whereas if no tumor is present, radiation treatments may be sufficient. Some of the various options for treating bladder cancer include:
- Tumor removal
Any of the above treatments can be incredibly expensive and even painful for patients to go through. Many bladder cancer patients are holding Takeda Pharmaceutical, the maker of Actos, responsible for their failure to notify patients of the dangers associated with this medication.
