What You Will Learn

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth most common cause of cancer death in the United States. One reason for the often poor outcome of pancreatic cancer is the location of the pancreas deep inside the body. Pancreatic tumors can’t be seen or felt by doctors during routine physical exams, and patients usually have no symptoms until the cancer has spread to other organs. That’s why it’s important to learn about the symptoms, risks of the disease and novel treatment options to better help you and your loved ones fight this cancer.
