Title: Achieving a diagnosis (pancreatic cancer support video 4) (Links to English resource)
Summary: A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer can be overwhelming, it raises many questions: What is the pancreas? Where is it? What does it do? What is pancreatic cancer? What happens now? What tests will I have? Who will treat me? What research is being done? Where do I go for support? The online pancreatic support videos include stories from individuals who have been affected by pancreatic cancer and are designed to be watched individually according to your own particular situation. Each module (around six minutes) tells a discrete story and is designed to introduce those affected by pancreatic cancer to some of the words you will now hear from your treating team. We encourage you to watch only those modules that are relevant to your current situation and take any questions raised back to your doctor.
