Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is cancer that originates in your lymphatic system, which is the disease-fighting network that is spread throughout your body. According to the National Cancer Institute, there are over 70,000 new cases of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma each year in the U.S. Typical symptoms include: swollen lymph nodes; abdominal pain or swelling; chest pain, coughing, or trouble breathing; fatigue; fever; night sweats; and weight loss.
Like any medical condition, a person with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma can establish disability by showing that it, or its treatment, prevents then from having the functional capacity to work. A person with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma can also establish disability by showing that a listing is met.
I represent a 46 year old teacher with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma whose Social Security Disability application was approved in two months. The only explanation for the rapid approval is that Social Security determined the claimant met the applicable listing, 13.05.Previous Next
