Breast Cancer And SSDI: What Do I Need To Know?

We would like to remind readers that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During the campaign, you will see many people wearing pink in an attempt to raise awareness about the disease, which affects more than 230,000 American women in new cases each year.

For example, during NFL games, you will see pink cleats, towels and hats. There are also many fundraising events taking place nationally. For more information about fundraising opportunities and events locally, you can reach Susan G. Komen Tulsa by clicking here.

An estimated 40,000 women in the U.S. die each year because of breast cancer. Additionally, more than 2,300 men receive a diagnosis. Early screening is important in preventing the spread of the disease—if you experience issues with lumps in your breasts or discharge from your nipples, talk to your doctor about these conditions.

Many women in the U.S. can be diagnosed at an early stage of breast cancer, before symptoms appear, through mammography. This is important, as it can help prevent the spread of the disease and reduce a victim’s chance of dying or becoming severely ill.

Talk to Our Tulsa SSDI Attorneys If You Have Breast Cancer

If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are unable to work, speak to our Tulsa attorneys about collecting Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. We work with victims of cancer with great compassion.

Breast cancer is listed through the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Compassionate Allowance program. Because of this, if you apply for benefits, you may be able to receive an expedited decision regarding your claim. To apply, the SSA may request medical documentation for your diagnosis, including MRI imaging, mammograms and biopsies, so you should be prepared to hand over sensitive information, if it is required.

Contact our Tulsa Social Security disability lawyers for a free evaluation of your case by calling (918) 265-1404. We can determine how to best move forward with your SSDI claim, so that it is successful.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    - Michael M.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    - Billy S.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
