Just thought I would add this to the site as it may be of interest.
My experience is a bit different to most as I never knew I had pancreatic cancer until after I had undergone Whipples Procedure. I only knew that there was something on my pancreas and (fortunately) was advised by my surgeon to have it removed. It was not until after the operation that it was discovered that the cells were pre-cancerous. As it was caught very early I did not need any follow up action.
