End of life care for pancreatic cancer

If you have been told that your pancreatic cancer can no longer be treated and that you are approaching the last few months or weeks of your life, this may have come as a huge shock. You may have lots of questions or concerns. The information in this section explains the symptoms people with pancreatic cancer may get towards the end of their life and how these are managed. There is also information about how to get the care and support you might need. This information is also for your family, friends and carers.

You may find some of this information upsetting or difficult to read. Not all of it may be relevant to you at the moment and you may want to come back to it later.

If you have any questions, speak to your doctor or nurse. You can also speak to our specialist nurses on our confidential Support Line. This can be a very difficult time, and they can answer your questions and talk through any worries you may have. They can also support families and carers.
