How To Help
Help us SHARE THE SCOPE of knowledge.
Millions of Americans are aware of the association between dietary habits and obesity and diabetes. Yet, most are unaware of the association between dietary habits and pancreatic cancer. One of the deadliest cancers that often presents with symptoms late in the disease process. If we encourage healthy eating habits and lifestyle modifications, imagine the impact we could have. Prevention is key to our fight!
The most important action you can take to help US reach our goals is to Share the Scope of your knowledge with those you know.
Advise them that they should see a doctor if they are experiencing:
- Persistent pain in upper abdomen or upper back
- Yellow skin, eyes, and nails
- Loss of appetite
- Dark urine and light (clay-colored) stool
- Stomach bloating
- Malodorous (bad smelling) stools
- Fatty stools that float
- Nausea and vomiting
- Unexplained/unintentional weight loss
A discussion with the doctor should determine if an endoscopy procedure is needed.
