Prostate Cancer Disability Insurance Attorneys
Secure Your Life as a Prostate Cancer Survivor with Dabdoub Law Firm
According to the National Cancer Institute:
“Prostate cancer is the most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death among men in the United States.”
Many men do not have signs or symptoms of prostate cancer in the disease’s early stages, which is why healthcare providers perform prostate exams. In its later stages, prostate cancer can spread to other parts of the body, or men can die from other causes without ever having any symptoms from the cancer.
To prevent spread and more serious disease, doctors must monitor and treat prostate cancer as soon as they detect it. Men with prostate cancer may have to go through a surgery known as a prostatectomy or undergo radiation therapy, and they can choose to experiment with cryotherapy, chemotherapy, and other treatment options.
Even though prostate cancer itself causes few symptoms, the treatments may come with complications. Removing the prostate, for example, may cause hormonal problems, and many cancer survivors suffer from depression and anxiety. Some people may also need to make lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of the cancer coming back.
Having cancer can change your life and the trajectory of your career. If you need time to seek treatment for prostate cancer or adjust to life after prostate cancer, and you have a disability insurance policy, you should file for short-term or long-term disability benefits.
If you have any trouble recovering these benefits from your insurance company, simply ask Dabdoub Law Firm for help. Our prostate cancer disability insurance lawyers have more than 20 years of experience helping clients like you get the benefits they deserve. Insurance companies know our name, and we know their tactics. Additionally, we will never charge you legal fees unless we recover benefits on your behalf.

Understanding Prostate Cancer
The prostate is a small gland below a man’s bladder that produces the fluid for semen. As such, only biological males get prostate cancer. Risk factors for developing prostate cancer include race, family history, and age. Men over 65 years of age are more likely to get prostate cancer, as are African American men.
In many cases, prostate cancer begins as out-of-control cells that form a small tumor within the prostate. When tumors do not spread beyond the prostate, the disease is less likely to cause signs and symptoms.
That being said, symptoms of prostate cancer may include:
- Trouble urinating (pain, dribbling, and difficulty starting or stopping the stream)
- Lower back pain
- Pain with ejaculation
If you experience any of these symptoms, call your doctor. At your doctor’s office, expect a digital rectal exam or a blood test for a prostate-specific antigen (PSA). Any abnormal results will lead to more tests, including an ultrasound, MRI, or biopsy.
Your doctor will decide how to treat your prostate cancer based on your unique situation. Sometimes, doctors only recommend treatment if the cancer is growing or causing symptoms. As we mentioned earlier, many men are only diagnosed with prostate cancer after they die of other causes.
If your treatment or its aftermath prevents you from performing the duties of your occupation, do not hesitate to file a claim under your disability insurance policy. Cancer is a qualifying medical condition, and Dabdoub Law Firm can help you get the short-term and long-term disability benefits you need.
