As the month of November brings pancreatic cancer into focus, it’s time to increase public understanding of the disease, including its prevalence, approaches to screening and prevention, treatment options, and resources that offer updated pancreatic cancer information throughout the year.
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. The American Cancer Society estimates that 42,470 new cases of pancreatic cancer will occur in the United States in 2009, with an estimated 35,240 deaths.
Staying informed with the latest news on prevention and screening is an important step in reducing your risk of developing pancreatic cancer. Access to current, in-depth treatment information can help you choose optimal care and achieve the best possible outcome.
