Self-Help & Information Material

Support groups for people with the same disease are an opportunity to exchange information and experiences independently without professional guidance as well as to give and receive emotional support. Members of support groups are experts in matters that affect them personally and often possess a high degree of “lay competence.”

Diagnosis, Treatment and Trials

The most important examination for people suspected of having a pancreatic tumor is computer tomography. If the diagnosis is confirmed, the head of the pancreas should be surgically removed. Pancreatic surgery is one of the most serious and difficult operations in the abdominal area but is the only possibility for recovery. A subsequent chemotherapy can further increase the chances of recovery.
