Today’s top health news

The charity Pancreatic Cancer UK has warned that pancreatic cancer will become one of the top four dangerous cancers within the next decade, reports Mirror.co.uk. By 2026, 11,279 people are expected to die every year from the disease, a 28 per cent rise on the 8,817 in 2014, the charity said. It is warning that a lack of medical breakthroughs in diagnosing the cancer early means most patients are diagnosed too late to receive surgery. Currently, having an operation to remove the tumour is the only treatment that saves lives, however, only 8 per cent of pancreatic cancer patients are eligible for surgery. Alex Ford, chief executive of the charity, said, “We will lead a revolution for people affected, funding research to allow more patients to be diagnosed earlier, when potentially life-saving surgery is possible.”
