Pancreatic Cancer

Posted on December 5th, 2001 by

Each year in the United States, more than 37,000 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is often detected at an advanced stage when it is difficult to treat, highlighting the importance of research on prevention and early detection. Although long-term survival with pancreatic cancer remains poor, researchers continue to explore new approaches to treatment. In addition, advances in supportive care have made pancreatic cancer treatment more tolerable, leading to improved quality of life. Understanding pancreatic cancer treatment options, the role of different doctors specializing in the treatment of pancreatic cancer, and how and when to access new and innovative pancreatic cancer treatment options available through clinical trials is essential in order to achieve the best outcome from pancreatic cancer treatment. The Cancer Consultants Pancreatic Cancer Information Center has been designed to help patients understand pancreatic cancer and pancreatic cancer treatment options while providing ongoing information, inspiration, support, and community to individuals affected by a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
