“We are so sorry to hear that Sven has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and send him our very best wishes. Our specialist nurses, who run the Pancreatic Cancer UK Support Line, are here for Sven and his loved ones, as they are for anyone affected by this devastating disease.
“The vague symptoms of pancreatic cancer – such as back pain, indigestion, and changes to bowel habits – are often confused with more common and much less serious health conditions, meaning that, tragically, it is often diagnosed too late for lifesaving treatment to be possible.
“Each year 10,500 people across the UK face pancreatic cancer. It is so important that anyone who experiences persistent symptoms for more than four weeks contacts their GP. Pancreatic cancer is extremely difficult to diagnose and to treat. There is no time to wait.”
Our team of specialist nurses are here to support anyone affected by pancreatic cancer.
