To mark National Mens Health Awareness Month, the Editorial Board of Living with a Disability magazine has published an important new article on how prostate cancer can become a disabling condition.

San Antonio. TX (PRWEB) June 25, 2014

To mark National Mens Health Awareness Month, which occurs every June, the Editorial Board of Living with a Disability magazine has published an important new article on how prostate cancer can become a disabling condition.

As the article highlights, prostate cancer is considered a disability by the Social Security Administration for those afflicted with the disease, provided that they are not working at what it deems to be a substantially gainful activity levels -- which in 2014 is pegged at $1070/month. Furthermore, prospective applicants should keep in mind the following:

  • Their application will be evaluated to determine what functional limitations they have as a result of the disease.
  • The factors that make them disabled will be evaluated mainly in light of how it affects their ability to work.
  • Generally, they have a higher chance of meeting a listing or receiving social security disability benefits if they have metastasis or advanced prostate cancer.

Many people are shocked to discover that obtaining social security disability benefits after theyre diagnosed with a disease such as prostate cancer may not be a straightforward, simple process, commented Living with a Disability magazines associate publisher Joshua C. Eyestone. Often, providing medical information isnt enough to guarantee approval. Applicants need to understand how the process works, and specifically what the SSA needs to see during their evaluation.

For this reason, we recommend that all applicants -- but especially those with serious illnesses like prostate cancer -- consult with an experienced social security disability attorney before they apply. It could help them save a great deal of time, stress and money, and allow them to put their total focus where it belongs: on their recovery.

Prostate cancer, which develops in the prostate gland of the male reproductive system, is one of the most commonly seen malignant cancers in men, and the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the US. In advanced cases, the cancer may spread to other part of the body. There are various tests available for the diagnosis of prostate cancer, with confirmation typically done through a tissue biopsy.

We join the medical community in urging all men from their 40th birthday onwards to have an annual prostate exam, so that any evidence of prostate cancer can be spotted and treatment can begin as early as possible, added Mr. Eyestone.
