LIVINGSTON—According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 6,000 New Jersey men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. Several factors can increase the risk of a man developing prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men, excluding skin cancer, and the second leading cause of cancer death in men.
The Cancer Centers of Saint Barnabas Medical Center will sponsor its 18th Annual Prostate Cancer Symposium on Sept. 15.

A light dinner will be served at 6 p.m. and the presentation will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the Islami Auditorium at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, 94 Old Short Hills Road in Livingston.
