Pancreatic Cancer Early Detection for High Risk Individuals


Pancreatic Cancer Early Detection Screening Program


The Pancreatic Cancer Early Detection team at Johns Hopkins brings together experts in gastroenterology, pathology, radiology, surgery and genetics using advances in genetic research and diagnostic technology to provide a multidisciplinary early detection program to individuals and families who have an elevated lifetime risk of developing pancreatic cancer. Pancreas cancer is an aggressive disease that is difficult to treat, often because it is not detected until it has reached an advanced stage or spread throughout the body. Early detection screening aims to catch the early precancerous lesions and small pancreatic cancers that often present without symptoms with the goal to treat the disease when it is operable and before it has spread systemically.

Pancreatic cancer screening is offered for individuals who have a high risk of developing pancreatic cancer based on their family history, genetic predispositions and certain diagnoses. This website is designed to help you evaluate whether you are at risk of developing pancreatic cancer and connect you to our team of experts in pancreas surveillance and early detection.
