Pancreatic Cancer Awareness

That the Parliament notes that November marks Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, and that 15 November 2018 is World Pancreatic Cancer Day; congratulates all of the pancreatic cancer charities and their supporters on working tirelessly to raise awareness of the condition; understands that it is one of the least survivable cancers and the fifth most common cause of cancer death in Scotland; notes that, while there are currently no screenings or early detection tests, some are in development; recognises that early detection is vital to improving a person's chance of survival by ensuring early access to treatment; appreciates that this need for early diagnosis makes awareness and knowledge of the condition all the more important, and welcomes all efforts in this cause.
