World Pancreatic Cancer Day

The poor survival outcome of pancreatic cancer has brought forth the necessity for better diagnostic options to detect cancer early. The importance of early diagnosis is exemplified by the fact that people who are diagnosed at an early stage when the tumor can be surgically removed tend to live for five or more years. Unfortunately, currently, there are no screening tests available for the early diagnosis. The World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition has therefore raised a demand for better measures to fight the cancer, beginning with better diagnostic methods for early detection.
