Basal Cell Carcinoma and Receiving Social Security Disability

Cancer begins in your cells, the building blocks of your body. When things are going as they should, your body produces new cells as you need them, which replace old cells that die. Sometimes this process does not work right. Old cells do not die when they should, and new cells develop even when you do not need them. Cancer is not just one disease. It is a group of diseases. Each one of these diseases is marked by cells that are aggressive (they grow and divide without respect to normal limits), invasive (they invade and destroy adjacent tissue) and sometimes metastatic (they spread to other parts of your body). Skin cancer is divided into two major groups. These are nonmelanoma and melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma is a kind of nonmelanoma skin cancer. It starts in the top layer of your skin that is called the epidermis. Basal cell carcinoma grows slowly and is painless. It is also the least likely cancer to spread in your body. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer. 75% of all skin cancers are basal cell carcinomas. In fact, it is the most common form of any type of cancer. Over 1 million people are diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma every year in just the United States alone. If you have a new skin growth that does not heal or bleeds easily, this is a sign or indication of a possible basal cell carcinoma. It may appear only slightly different from your normal skin. Basal cell carcinoma can be a growth or bump on your skin. It may look: Other signs and symptoms that may indicate the presence of basal cell carcinoma are: You or a loved one may have basal cell carcinoma. Although this condition would not normally qualify you to receive Social Security disability benefits or disability benefits, basal cell carcinoma and/or complications resulting from or other conditions along with it may be why you or your loved one is disabled. It may be the reason why you need financial assistance. You or your loved one may have already applied for this financial help by applying for Social Security disability benefits or disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. Were you denied by the Social Security Administration? If you or your loved one decides to appeal the denial by the Social Security Administration, think about this carefully.
