When a person is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, it is important to treat the condition in order to prevent further adverse health effects. Some patients choose to use medication to try and minimize the harmful effects that diabetes can have on the body. Actos is a drug designed to help patients by regulating blood sugar levels. Unfortunately, the drug has also been linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer—a potentially fatal condition.

5 Symptoms of Bladder Cancer Not to Be Ignored

Like many other types of cancer, bladder cancer is most successfully treated when it is caught early. As a result, it is important for Actos users to be aware of the symptoms related to this disease. Common symptoms include the following:

  1. Bloody urine
  2. Frequent bladder infections
  3. Back pain
  4. Frequent urination
  5. Painful urination

Unfortunately, the symptoms of bladder cancer are often subtle, and can therefore be easily overlooked. Bloody urine is typically the first symptom that most sufferers experience. This symptom, however, is usually not painful and does not last for a long Cancer Sign in Block Lettersperiod of time. The blood is also often undetectable by the naked eye. As a result, some people either miss the sign or choose to ignore it, thinking it is harmless.

Any individual that suffers from these symptoms should seek immediate medical attention. This is especially true for diabetes patients who treat their condition with Actos. For those who have already been diagnosed with the condition, the symptoms may make it difficult or uncomfortable to carry out activities of daily life. These victims may be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation. If you or a loved one developed bladder cancer after using Actos, we encourage you to contact us today for a consultation at 888-526-7616.
