If you have early-stage pancreatic cancer, you may have an operation (called a resection) to remove it.
You may also have surgery to relieve symptoms if the cancer is blocking the bile duct or the bowel.
Order or download our free booklet about pancreatic cancer. It covers causes and symptoms, diagnosis, staging and grading, treatments and clinical trials.
If you have a lot on your mind, you might find it useful to make a checklist. You can use our checklists for home, work and travel to help you get organised.
