Pancreatic Cancer Aware for the general public
Decades of under-funding in pancreatic cancer research means that there are no curative treatments for pancreatic cancer on the horizon. While no early detection test exists, the key to improving survival rates is getting more patients diagnosed early by getting them to recognise the disease and its symptoms.
The pancreaticcanceraware.org site simply focuses on raising awareness of pancreatic cancer. It includes:
- What is pancreatic cancer?
- The signs and symptoms
- The risk factors
- Pancreatic cancer quiz
- Symptoms song and animation
- Real life stories
- What to do if you are concerned
- Healthcare profession section (see below)
