Bladder cancer can have multiple painful side effects and it can be potentially fatal if not treated in time. There are a few important facts and statistics that are important to note.
For example, over 65,000 people a year are diagnosed with this type of cancer. Of these people, men are three times more likely to be diagnosed with it. Age and ethnic origin are also factors that may increase a person’s risk of developing the disease. People over the age of 73 are more likely to be diagnosed with this type of cancer.
Also, Caucasian people are two times more likely to develop bladder cancer. Another thing that has recently been linked to an increase of bladder cancer, is the type 2 diabetes drug, Actos. Lawsuits have been filed that claim that patients have developed this cancer after using the medication for over a year, but they were unaware of the increased risks.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with bladder cancer as a result of taking Actos, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Actos bladder cancer lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-641-9810
