Coronavirus information for people with symptoms of pancreatic cancer

If you have symptoms of pancreatic cancer, it’s really important that you contact your GP. Don’t worry about your GP or the NHS being too busy at the moment. The NHS is still doing tests for cancer and offering treatment, and the sooner you get any symptoms checked out the better.

The NHS is taking measures to keep people safe from coronavirus.

Your GP surgery may offer a telephone and online consultation, or a face to face appointment. We know people worried about pancreatic cancer often have to speak to their GP several times. You might find our tips for talking to your GP helpful.

If your GP thinks you might have pancreatic cancer, they should refer you to the hospital for tests. If the doctor decides you do need tests, it’s important you go for these.

If your symptoms get worse while you are waiting for tests, tell your GP or hospital doctor.
