Can You Collect SSDI With Prostate Cancer?

Each September, we like to remind readers that it is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, in hopes that people are screened early to avoid complications with the disease.

Sadly, according to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, each year, more than 29,000 men die of the disease, as it is the second leading cause of cancer death of U.S.

This is unacceptable, as the five-year survival rate is almost 100 percent if a victim is diagnosed and treated early.

If you are a male over 30, you should go to your doctor regularly for screenings, as one in seven men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. If you have an adult male in your family, talk to him about visiting the doctor for routine exams.

Throughout the month, you will see many Americans who have been affected by prostate cancer wearing blue to raise awareness.

Troutman & Troutman, P.C. – Tulsa Social Security disability lawyers


    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.
