An in-depth look at pancreatic cancer & treatment options #Change4Cancer

Why pancreatic cancer is so deadly and early symptoms hard to spot

In almost every country, it's the only major cancer with a single-digit five-year survival rate.

Every day, more than 1,200 people worldwide will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and an estimated 1,180 die from the disease.

While pancreatic cancer accounts for just three percent of all cancers and seven percent of cancer deaths, it is one of the five deadliest cancers which is why advocates like Samantha say raising awareness is so important.

They looked at matters relating to access to quality treatment, early screening and detection, behavioural change and alternative healing methods. "So by the time, it's diagnosed its late-stage and hard to treat".

"Things like stomach ache, lower back pain, unexplained weight loss, jaundice, or the yellowing of the skin and the eyes, new onset diabetes", Fleshman said. These symptoms are often vague and are generally attributed to other less serious and more common conditions initially.

African-Americans have a higher incidence of pancreatic cancer compared to those of Asian, Hispanic or Caucasian descent.

World Pancreatic Cancer Day, marked today, is an initiative of the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition, which consists of more than 70 organisations from more than 30 countries.

The 2014 survey found 60% of people knew "almost nothing" about pancreatic cancer, which occurs when abnormal cells develop and grow out of control, causing tumours. "If it's detected early enough and hasn't spread, some patients are eligible for surgery".

She suggests that further research is required to highlight the results of pancreatic cancer and support families of individuals suffering from the disease.
