More than 56,000 Americans will receive a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Of all different kinds of cancer, pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rates.

When more people recognize the symptoms and understand who is more likely to develop this cancer, early detection can occur and that can lead to a better outcome for the patient. November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, which is to bring awareness for the disease and to encourage early detection.
