Cancer originates in your body’s basic building blocks. These are your cells. Old cells die when they should and new cells are formed at the right time when your system is working like it ought to. When your body is not working properly, old cells do not die at the right time, and new cells are made even though you do not need them. A mass (tumor) can begin from these excess cells. These tumors can either be malignant or benign. Malignant tumors are cancer. Benign tumors are not. Cancer is much larger than one disorder. It is an enormous group of diseases. Cancer is characterized by cells that are invasive (they invade and destroy adjacent tissue), aggressive (they grow and divide without respect to normal limits) and sometimes metastatic (they spread to other parts of the body). Retinoblastoma is one of the many different forms of cancer. It begins in the retina. This is the sensitive lining that is on the inside of your eye. Retinoblastoma usually occurs in young children under the age of six. It is most often diagnosed in children between the ages of one and two. Retinoblastoma rarely occurs in adults. Retinoblastoma is a rare cancer. However, in children, it is the most common cancer that affects the eye. It is estimated that somewhere around 300 children are diagnosed with retinoblastoma in the United States every year. There are several signs and symptoms that may indicate that your child with disability or your loved one has retinoblastoma. These include: Your child with disability or your loved one may have retinoblastoma. This disease and/or complications resulting from it may be the cause of their disability and the reason why you need financial assistance. Have you thought about applying for financial help from the Social Security Administration by applying for Social Security disability benefits or disability benefits for your child with disability or your loved one because of the disability caused by retinoblastoma and/or complications resulting from this disease? Have you already done this and your child or your loved one was denied by the Social Security Administration? If you decide to appeal the denial by the Social Security Administration, remember this important fact. People who have a disability lawyer like the one you will find at are approved more often than people who are not represented by a disability attorney. Please do not hesitate.
