Qualifying for SSD with Cancer

The term “cancer” represents more than 100 diseases and is broadly defined as potentially unlimited growth of cells. Abnormal cells that grow out of control and are left untreated can result in death. The body is made up of millions of cells, most of which grow, divide, and die normally. When a person is affected by cancer, the cells do not divide and die, they continue to grow and move into tissue areas.

According to the American Cancer Society, cancer cells result from damaged DNA. Damaged DNA can be inherited or result from outside environmental factors. In many, but not all, cases these abnormal cells, or cancer cells, form tumors, which spread and begin to replace the tissue they invade. Regardless of where cancer cells spread, they are named for the area where they originated.

People who were forced to leave the workforce due to a cancer diagnosis mat qualify for SSD benefits. Let our attorneys help you obtain the benefits you need to cope with your disabling condition.

Types of Cancers that Qualify for SSD

Various types of cancers are considered disabling conditions by the SSA. Cancer can cause symptoms ranging from severe pain and weakness to physical disability and even death.
