Pancreatic cancer is often diagnosed late. Nearly 50% of diagnoses are made via an emergency presentation and 88% of those diagnosed via this route will die within one year. Survival is 3 times higher for patients diagnosed via GP referral.
The symptoms of pancreatic cancer can be vague and varied and can include:
abdominal pain and/or back pain,
unexplained weight loss, nausea,
loss of appetite, fatigue
, new onset diabetes,
or a change in existing diabetes and changes in bowel habit (both constipation or diarrhoea).
