Bladder Cancer?


I have been receiving 100% disability for 5 years for residual due to lung cancer. They removed left lobe. I also recently had tumor removed from my bladder which was low grade cancer. I am Vietnam Vet. I am not rated P & T as far as I know. Should I file for the bladder cancer or leave it alone since I'm already receiving 100%? I don't want to put up red flag. I am 78 yrs old.

Yes, you should go ahead and file for the bladder cancer benefit. That won't raise any sort of red flag and I'll anticipate that you'll receive a P & T rating and you may be eligible for the housebound benefit.

This will be worth your time. Good luck sir.
