The World Pancreatic Cancer Day is organized by the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition,
Statement from the World Pancreatic Cancer Day website
On November 16, 2017, people around the world will unite to Demand Better in the fight against the world’s toughest cancer. The World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition has brought together more than 60 organizations from 27 countries and six continents to raise awareness and inspire action on World Pancreatic Cancer Day. Through this combined effort, we are bringing greater attention, awareness, and better outcomes to this deadly disease.
Currently, there is no screening test or early detection method for pancreatic cancer. Some are in development – another sign of the progress happening in the field that needs greater attention and funding support.

Early diagnosis is vital, so listen to your body and don’t ignore the signs. If you have symptoms, speak to your healthcare provider as soon as you can.
