What should I do if I think I have a family history of pancreatic cancer?

If you think you might have a family history of pancreatic cancer, talk to your doctor, especially if you have any worrying symptoms. Give them as much information as possible about pancreatic cancer or known hereditary cancer syndromes in your family.

Discuss your situation with them, and ask whether you should be referred:

  • to a specialist in pancreatic disease
  • for genetic counselling
  • to the EUROPAC study.
