There is a chronic lack of awareness of pancreatic cancer among the general public, almost half of patients have never even heard of pancreatic cancer before their diagnosis, even though it’s the fifth most common cause of cancer death in the UK.
If cancer is caught early, there are much greater treatment options and the chances of survival greatly increase. With pancreatic cancer, there is only one potential treatment option that will save a patient’s live – surgery – and that is why raising awareness among the public at every opportunity is vital.
We aim to increase awareness of pancreatic cancer and its signs and symptoms amongst the general public, and healthcare professionals, by doing the following:
