Pancreatic cancer is relatively uncommon, accounting for only 2.2% of all cancer cases in Australia. Therefore, some people may not fully understand the role of the pancreas and how cancer can develop here. This section outlines the functions of the pancreas, as well as important information about pancreatic cancer, including possible causes, diagnosis and treatment.
Are you enrolled in the APGI project? Or do you have a loved one enrolled with us? Keep up to date with what's happening at APGI with our biannual community newsletter series.
The APGI community engagement group is a new initiative, driven by those directly impacted by pancreatic cancer. Combining the efforts of patients, carers, family and friends with that of the researchers will go a long way to improving awareness and funding for this often forgotten disease. Find out how you too can become involved and help make a difference.
Have you been affected by pancreatic cancer? Perhaps a loved-one has, or you are a carer for someone with pancreatic cancer? We would like to hear and share your stories.
