You don’t have to face pancreatic cancer alone

A diagnosis can be a terrible shock, but we are here to help you make sense of it, and guide and support you and your family at every step.

Our two booklets for people recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer are tailored to your diagnosis. They contain the key facts, from explaining your diagnosis and treatment options, to how to deal with symptoms.

Pancreatic cancer that can be removed by surgery booklet

This booklet is for you if you have been diagnosed with early, localised pancreatic cancer (stage 1 or 2), or told you can have surgery to remove the cancer (operable cancer).

Newly diagnosed booklet

Pancreatic cancer if you can’t have surgery (inoperable cancer) booklet

This booklet is for you if you have been diagnosed with locally advanced pancreatic cancer (stage 3) or advanced cancer (metastatic or stage 4), or if you’ve been told you can’t have surgery to remove the cancer.
