General | Latest Info

While pink may be rage in October, we find ourselves turning to purple in November to support Pancreatic Cancer awareness. While not common cancer, number of people affected is increasing every year with expect 55 500 to be diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer this year. The hardest part about Pancreatic Cancer is that there is no screening test, no blood work or X - ray to detect this cancer at an early stage. Instead, every person needs to be aware of warning signs that can suggest they might be at risk for having Pancreatic Cancer. These warning signs include: skin or white of eyes turning yellow Upper belly / stomach pain or back pain that does not get better with medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen Indigestion or bad stomach ache that does not get better with antacids Unexplained weight loss when there has been no change in diet or exercise New diagnosis of diabetes late in life while person at any age can be diagnose with Pancreatic Cancer, most people diagnose with Pancreatic Cancer are between ages of 55 and 85 years old. If YOU are diagnosed with diabetes late in life and have no other risk factors for it, YOU may want to ask your doctor if YOU are at risk for Pancreatic Cancer. Along with having no good screening test, there are only two ways to actively prevent disease. The main one is to stop any tobacco smoking. Through research, we have now learnt that smoking is the number one thing a person can do to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. The second thing is to maintain a normal weight. Obesity is also associated with Pancreatic Cancer, so make sure to exercise at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Also, try to eat healthy with normal size food portions. A good way to cut out sugar in your life is to remove all juice and soda. Try to drink water, tea, or coffee.

Green, purple, or red?

Awareness Ribbon made its debut in 1979. The very first ones were literally yellow ribbons tied around an old oak tree. They were used to support the American embassy during the Iranian hostage Crisis. Perhaps the biggest moment in Ribbon history, though, came in 1991 when Charlotte Haley created pink ribbons to bring attention to Breast Cancer. Her ribbons were so successful, they became symbols for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and inspired more colors for other causes, such as red ribbons for the AIDS movement in the 80s. From that point on, ribbons were a popular part of raising awareness. The New York Times even named 1992 Year of Ribbon in their publication. Today, they are widely used by non - profits, charities, fundraisers, and other organizations around the world.

How peach became pink

The use of ribbons as a symbol of support and solidarity has been thing for some time. The idea may have sprung from a folk story from the 1950s about a reformed prisoner returning home by train. He instructed his family members to put WHITE Ribbon in tree if they wanted him to get off the train. Otherwise, he 'll keep on going to new life. In the early 1970s, song Tie YELLOW Ribbon Round Ole Oak Tree became a hit for pop group Tony Orlando and Dawn. And in 1979, Penne Laingen seized on the idea of YELLOW Ribbon to advocate for the return of her husband, Bruce, one of the US hostages held in Iran. After the press reported what Penne had done, YELLOW ribbons blanketed the country. It appears that the use of colored ribbons to raise awareness of cancer began with a very modest movement in 1991. A woman named Charlotte Haley began handing out peach ribbons at her local grocery store and doctors offices with postcards attached that called attention to the lack of funding for Breast Cancer prevention. In 1992, after hearing about Haley's efforts, Alexandra Penney, editor of Self Magazine, asked Haley if she could use her Ribbon in an issue of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Haley refuse, saying that Penney's effort was too corporate. Instead, Penney chose PINK Ribbon and came up with the idea to hand out PINK ribbons at makeup - counters in New York City to call attention to effort. Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation began handing out PINK visors to participants in its Race for Cure in 1990, so the color PINK already had affiliation with Breast Cancer. Soon, ribbon and color came together and, in the late 90s, pinkribbon. Com was launched and, later, nonprofit PINK Ribbon International was born. The idea of raising awareness through colored ribbons took off.

Stomach cancer

En espanol | Although Pancreatic Cancer can be treated if caught early, signs are often subtle, and disease is usually missed until it is in later, more serious stages. But there are some warning signs that you can watch out for. The pancreas has two main jobs in the body: to make juices that help digest food and to make hormones, such as insulin and glucagon, that help control blood sugar levels. Digestive juices are made by exocrine pancreas cells, which is where about 95 percent of Pancreatic cancers begin. Disease accounts for approximately 3 percent of all cancers and about 7 percent of all cancer deaths, according to the American Cancer Society, and risk goes up with age. About two - thirds of patients are at least 65 years old, and the average age at time of diagnosis is 71, according to ACS. Only 8. 2 percent of Pancreatic Cancer patients survive for five years, according to the National Cancer Institute. Pancreas is deep inside the body, and early tumors can't be detected by standard physical exams. People usually have no symptoms until cancer has already spread to other organs. Even so, NCI advises people to consult their doctor if they have any of the following symptoms: light - color or greasy stools: Bilirubin helps give stools their brown color, so when bile duct is block, stools may be gray or pale. Pancreatic Cancer can also make it difficult for the intestines to help break down fats, so stools may become greasy and float in the toilet. Belly Pain: Pain in the abdomen or back is common with Pancreatic Cancer. Cancers that start in the body or tail of the pancreas can grow fairly large and start to press on other nearby organs, causing pain, ACS say. Cancer may also spread to nerves surrounding the pancreas, which often cause back pain. Of course, pain in the abdomen or back is fairly common and is most often caused by something other than Pancreatic Cancer. Loss of Appetite and weight loss: Unintended weight loss and loss of Appetite can be warning signs of Pancreatic Cancer. Nausea and vomiting: Cancer can press on the far end of the stomach and partially block it, making it hard for food to pass. This may cause nausea, vomiting and pain after eating. A more detailed list of symptoms is available from ACS.


Pancreatic Cancer Symptoms: Location Matters

Initially, pancreatic cancer tends to be silent and painless as it grow. By time it's large enough to cause symptoms, pancreatic cancer has generally grown outside the pancreas. Because of the location of pancreasA in the body, symptoms include: jaundice. As pancreatic cancer blocks ducts that release bile into the intestine, ingredients of bile build up in the blood. This turns skin and eyes yellow, condition called jaundice. The same blockage causes dark urine, light colored stools, and itching. Abdominal pain. Pancreatic cancer can cause dull ache in the upperA abdomen radiating to the back. Pain may come and go. Back pain. Bloating. Some people with pancreatic cancer have a sense of early fullness with meals or uncomfortable swelling in the abdomen. Nausea. Vomiting. In general, symptoms appear earlier from cancers in the head of pancreas, compared to those in the body and tail. Keep in mind that having any or all of these symptoms does mean a person has pancreatic cancer. There are many other causes for these types of symptoms.

Pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic Cancer is difficult to diagnose in early stages, as there are no preventive screening tests available. Pancreatic Cancer uses purple ribbon as a tribute to one woman who loves her mother. A woman named Rise Schneider, whose favorite color was purple, died after battling Pancreatic Cancer. Her daughter, finding little formal support in her time of need, worked to found Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to support people with Pancreatic Cancer. November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. During this month, PanCan and other organizations, such as National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, work together to raise awareness and funds for Pancreatic Cancer research.
