Qualifying SSD benefits for injury undergoes change

When a person in Newark applies for Social Security disability benefits for injuries, they often rely on reports by their doctors documenting their medical condition.

Nearly all forms of prostate cancer are adenocarcinomas which are initially formed in the gland cells.
