95% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die from disease

Ninety five percent of people in the East of England diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die from the disease, according to figures from a cancer charity.

It is the worst survival rate of all common cancers because it is often only found when it is too late to treat.

Of the 960 people diagnosed every year only 48 survive. Pancreatic Cancer Action is calling for greater awareness of the symptoms.

Julie Williams' husband was diagnosed with the cancer in 2015 and died just 9 months later. She's calling for greater awareness of the symptoms.

I think you just need to keep going back and if you're not happy with a diagnosis, ask for a second opinion because the quicker this is diagnosed the better chances are that it can be treated.
