Bladder Cancer Has Been Linked to Diabetes Drug Actos

The type-2 diabetes drug, Actos, has been linked to higher incidences of bladder cancer according to a study viewed by the FDA.

Patients that have taken the drug Actos and have been diagnosed with bladder cancer or experiencing symptoms suggestive of bladder cancer are strongly encouraged to contact the Actos lawyer at our nationally-recognized law firm to have their potential claim evaluated.

If you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, you should immediately consult with a physician:

Blood in your urine: If blood is present, your urine may appear dark yellow, bright red, or cola-colored in nature. Keep in mind that if you have taken Actos, it's possible that your urine may appear normal in color, yet it contains blood that can only be detected on a microscopic level, thus requiring examination by your doctor.

  • Increase in urination
  • Pain while urinating
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Abdominal pain
  • Back pain

All of the above-listed symptoms are details that are critical to be mindful of and advise your doctor of at the time of your appointment. Only your doctor can rule out potential bladder cancer, and no one that has taken Actos should attempt to diagnose themselves based on the presence or lack of symptoms.

The tests and diagnoses regarding bladder cancer will vary based on your doctor's assessment as well as the presence of any abnormalities.  

Actos claims are governed by a strict statute date, meaning you could be barred from any potential recovery if you don't file a lawsuit with a qualified Actos lawyer. If you have any questions about your potential claim, call our offices immediately. 

There will never be any cost to our clients who wish to pursue an Actos claim through our office.
