Where Does Bladder Cancer Commonly Metastasize?
Bladder cancer is a deadly illness in which bladder cells mutate and grow uncontrollably. These mutated cells begin replacing normal cells as they die off, making what was once a fully-functional bladder unhealthy and function improperly, if at all. In addition to causing bladder failure, bladder cancer can cause a number of serious health problems, such as pain and bloody urine. However, one of the greatest dangers posed by bladder cancer is its ability to metastasize, or spread to other regions of the body.
People who have taken the Type-2 diabetes drug Actos have been shown to have a dangerously increased risk of developing bladder cancer. Regrettably, these people may also have to face that cancer spreading to other parts of their body. If you have taken Actos and been diagnosed with bladder cancer, the Actos lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher may be able to help you seek compensation from the drug’s manufacturer. Contact our experienced Actos attorneys at 800-641-9810 to learn more about how we may be able to serve you.
One of the most dangerous aspects of bladder cancer is that it is highly likely to spread to other areas of the body. As the cancer spreads to other body parts, a person’s health becomes more unstable and it is less likely they will make a full recovery. Bladder cancer commonly metastasizes to:
- Lymph Nodes
Regardless of where the cancer metastasizes to, a person who has had such a serious health problem inflicted upon them by a drug that was supposed to heal may deserve to pursue legal action against the negligent drug manufacturer.
