Bladder Cancer Symptoms

Actos, a prescription drug intended to help people with Type 2 diabetes manage their symptoms, has recently been connected to higher chances of users developing bladder cancer. Rather than helping consumers manage a difficult condition, Actos instead puts their health at risk from a completely different disease. When pharmaceutical companies fail to manufacture safe products, they put consumers at risk of developing serious health complications and should be held liable for their carelessness.

If you have developed bladder cancer after using Actos, an Actos bladder cancer attorney of Chenkin Law Firm can help you take action against Takeda Pharmaceutical, the company responsible for this medication. Call us today to discuss your legal options with a knowledgeable member of our staff at (800) 721-7472.

Symptoms of Bladder Cancer

Like with many other types of cancer, bladder cancer becomes more dangerous the longer it goes untreated as it can spread to other organs in the body. Thus, recognizing the symptoms of bladder cancer as early as possible could increase the chances of treatment being successful. Some of the most common symptoms of this type of cancer include:

  • Blood in the urine
  • Painful urination
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Inability to urinate
  • Pain in the abdomen

If you are taking Actos and have not yet experienced these side effects, it is in your best interest to consult a trusted medical professional and discuss whether or not you should continue use of the drug.
