Pancreatic Cancer Screening

Hello,

I was wondering if anybody has been advised on pancreatic cancer screening. I have heard mixed things. I am a carrier of BRCA + pancreatic cancer runs in my family even among people without BRCA. I went to a gastrointerologist who specializes in pancreatic cancer and he said I should start yearly CT's 10 years before the age of the youngest person in my family diagnosed with PC (something like that, not sure if I remembered 100% correctly). Have any other family members out there sought advice on this?

Hi Rufus,

welcome to the forum. Rufus I am going to email you directly with some further information regarding the Europac study based in Liverpool. I do hope that is okay and the information is helpful.
Kind Regards
