Global Pancreatic Cancer Surveillance Resources

Approximately 10% of pancreatic cancers are due to a hereditary cause. Candidates for Pancreatic Cancer Surveillance may include:

  • Individuals with a known hereditary syndrome associated with an increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer

  • Individuals with multiple family members who have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer

The American College of Gastroenterology (ACG), the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), and the American Gastroenterology Association (AGA) suggest that patients be cared for at expert centers that provide
a comprehensive, multidisciplinary pancreatic cancer surveillance program. Many of these centers participate in consortiums that encourage collection of
standardized surveillance data to support research efforts aimed at improving pancreatic cancer surveillance.
