Pancreatic cancer is incredibly tough to detect in its early stages and this means that it’s often diagnosed too late. In this episode, we talk to the relative of a pancreatic cancer patient whose diagnosis came too late to save them. We’re also joined by leading pancreatic scientist, Professor Gerard Evan who discusses his Cancer Research UK funded trial.
