About The Campaign
The Pancreatic Cancer Aware campaign aims to improve early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer by raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of the disease.
The first phase of the campaign focuses on the importance of being aware of the most common symptoms associated with pancreatic cancer: new onset abdominal pain, painless jaundice, unexplained weight loss, pale and smelly stools and mid-back pain.
The campaign includes national outdoor press and online advertising featuring these symptoms.
Members of the public who experience any of the symptoms featured in the campaign are encouraged to seek medical advice if they are persistent, worsening and not normal for them.
Who developed the campaign?
Pancreatic Cancer Aware campaign was developed by Pancreatic Cancer Action, which is a registered UK charity (113879) that focus on promoting awareness and early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
