November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, and we’re helping you learn more all week. Test your knowledge and get the facts.
Your pancreas is a gland in your abdomen that helps with digestion and blood sugar regulation. Know your pancreas.
Signs of pancreatic cancer include abdominal or mid-back pain, weight loss and loss of appetite, nausea, jaundice, and a new onset of diabetes.
Your risk of pancreatic cancer is based on your family history, diet, race, gender, age, and smoking and can go up if you have obesity, diabetes, or chronic pancreatitis. Are you at risk?
Take the pledge to demand better for pancreatic cancer patients and go purple to raise awareness.
Spread the word, host a purple party, talk to your elected officials, register for PurpleStride, and more to make a difference.
