Do you know the symptoms of pancreatic cancer? | Ydych chi’n gwybod beth yw symptomau canser y pancreas?

Please take a moment to get to know them. Because pancreatic cancer is the 6th biggest cancer killer in Wales causing over 500 deaths a year. The truth is only 7.3% of pancreatic cancer patients will survive 5 years after their diagnosis. In some areas of Wales, that number is as low as 3%.

It is for this reason; our pancreatic cancer awareness campaign has come to Denbighshire, Rhondda Cyon Taf, Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil, Caerphilly, Newport, Cardiff and Wrexham.
