Managing pancreatic cancer symptoms and side effects

Pancreatic cancer can cause a range of symptoms, including problems with diet and digestion, pain, fatigue and feeling sick. Everyone is different, and people will get different symptoms at different stages of their cancer. There are ways to manage these symptoms. Treatments for pancreatic cancer, such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, can help with some of the symptoms – although they can also cause side effects. 

If you are having any problems with symptoms or side effects, speak to your doctor or nurse. They will help you find ways to manage them. You can speak to our specialist nurses on our free Support Line if you have any questions about symptoms.
