You may qualify for Social Security disability benefits if you have been diagnosed with a severe condition that has lasted or is expected to last at least 12 months. Additionally, if a condition is terminal, then it also may qualify. A New York Social Security disability attorney can evaluate your case.

One type of condition that may be covered by disability benefits is malignant neoplastic diseases. This is a condition in which a malignant growth or tumor exists, sometimes spreading to other areas of the body through the lymphatic system or bloodstream.

When this condition is evaluated for eligibility, several factors are taken into consideration, including where the malignancy originated and the extent of involvement in the body's functioning. 

Anti neoplastic therapy is also part of the evaluation, as far as the duration, frequency and response to it, including: 

  • hormones
  • surgery
  • immunotherapy
  • irradiation
  • stem cell transplantation
  • chemotherapy
  • bone marrow transplantation.

​Also evaluated are any post-therapeutic residuals.
