Early Stage Pancreatic
Pancreatic cancer is called a silent killer because it can grow or spread without detection. It’s critically important to learn what early detection means for this cancer and what your responsibility is in taking care of yourself.
If pancreatic cancer is caught early, it may be treatable and potentially curable, but unfortunately only about 9% of cases are detected early at stage 1. This is because, many people fail to pay serious attention to the signs, symptoms and risk factors they may have to help them early detect or prevent this devastating disease.
Remember, you are your own best advocate when it comes to pancreatic cancer prevention and early detection. Know the symptoms, risk factors and how to mitigate the risks so any symptoms have a chance to be treated before it may be too late.
