Many Americans who suffer from Type 2 diabetes rely on medications in order to effectively manage their symptoms and prevent major complications from coming about. Unfortunately, many of those who use the prescription drug Actos are unaware of the serious, and even potentially deadly side effects which can come about after prolonged use of the product. This is in no small part due to the reluctance of the drug’s manufacturers to be up front and honest with consumer about the risks of the drug in order to protect the healthy sales of the product.

Failing to adequately inform the consumer of the risks associated with the consumption of a drug is a clear case of negligence on the part of the manufacturer and distributor, and recent studies have connected Actos with the development of bladder cancer, and dangerous carcinoma which is difficult to identify in its early stages and difficult to treat as it progresses.

Symptoms of Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is a deceptive condition which is difficult to identify properly in its earlier stages due to ambiguous symptoms, but only becomes more dangerous the longer it goes untreated. If you have taken Actos experience any of the following symptoms, bladder cancer caused by the use of the durg should be a serious concern:

* Abdominal pain
* Difficultly urinating
* Blood in the urine
* Painful urination

Bladder cancer can be a life altering condition, and when your condition is the result of negligent practices on the part of a drug manufacturer, you should do everything in your power to obtain financial compensation in order to help you pay your medical bills and other expenses. An lawyer is an essential part of protecting your rights and interests after a positive diagnosis, as you will need skilled legal representation which allows you to focus on your recovery rather than legal dealings.
