If you’ve been diagnosed with Sacromatoid Carcinoma of the Lung you can receive Social Security disability benefits. Sacromatoid Carcinoma of the Lung is one of the conditions that qualifies for disability benefits under the Social Security Administration’s Compassionate Allowance program.
What is Sacromatoid Carcinoma of the Lung?
Sacromatoid Carcinoma of the Lung is a serious fast-growing cancer that spreads rapidly and aggressively through the body. It’s a mix of carcinoma and sarcoma cancers. Sarcomatoid carcinomas are most commonly found in the lungs, but they can appear anywhere in the body. By the time it’s diagnosed this type of cancer is usually very advanced. Symptoms of Sacromatoid Carcinoma of the Lung include:
- Chest pain
- Breathing difficulties
- Unexplained weight loss
- Dry cough
- Bloody phlegm
From the lungs this cancer often spreads to the lymph nodes, adrenal glands, brain, bones, liver, or kidneys. There is no cure.
What Is A Compassionate Allowance?
The Social Security Administration understands that some medical conditions are so serious that the people who have them need immediate assistance. These conditions are on the Compassionate Allowance list. The SSA’s computer system is set up to flag any application for benefits due to a medical condition that is on the Compassionate Allowance list. The computer system will send those applications to the front of the line for fast processing and quick approval. Once the application is approved benefits will start being paid immediately. People who are applying for disability benefits because they have a medical condition on the Compassionate Allowance list could start receiving benefits in just weeks after approval.
Medical Evidence For Sacromatoid Carcinoma of the Lung
Including medical evidence is important because the SSA needs evidence showing that you have been diagnosed with Sacromatoid Carcinoma of the Lung and that you meet the Blue Book requirements. If you include medical evidence your application will get approved and processed quickly. The medical evidence you submit with your application for disability benefits should include:
- Your clinical history and examination that describes the diagnostic features of the impairment and a letter of diagnosis.
- Biopsy or needle aspiration information found in operative notes, pathology reports, summaries of hospitalizations or other medical reports that include details of surgical and pathological findings; and
- Imaging reports (e.g., chest x-rays, CT scan, PET scan, or MRI).
You can include any other medical evidence that you think will help show you meet the Blue Book requirements.
