Prostate Cancer will be the focus of the annual Bill and Ruth McGraw Cancer Awareness Symposium to be held Thursday, Sept. 3, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., at the Crystal Room, 845 W. Market St., Troy.
The symposium is free and open to the public. Because seating is limited, registration is requested by noon, Aug. 31.
Belayet Hussain, M.D., Ronald Setzkorn, M.D., and Stewart Lowry, M.D., will discuss the topic, “Prostate Cancer: What Every Man and Woman Needs to Know About Current Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment Options.”
Dr. Hussain has been practicing in Miami County since 1989. A board certified urologist, he is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and Fellow of the International College of Surgeons.
Dr. Setzkorn, a radiation oncologist, is ACR board certified and serves as director of radiation for the UVMC Cancer Care Center.
Dr. Lowry, board certified in general surgery with the American Board of Surgery, is the cancer liaison physician and medical director of the Cancer Care Program at UVMC. He is a partner in Miami County Surgeons.
“More than 200,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the U.S. annually, making this the most common cancer for men,” Dr. Setzkorn said.
Prostate cancer is the only common cancer which can be diagnosed by blood tests, and there are many options for patients from observation, to radiation, to surgery, he said.

The program is sponsored by the McGraw Family Fund of the Troy Foundation, the UVMC Foundation and the UVMC Cancer Care Center.
