An in-depth look at pancreatic cancer and treatment options # Change4Cancer


Xolani Gwala hosted the second edition of # Change4Cancer.

His participation was a group of various stakeholders who considered the many answers to questions about the disease.

Topics related to access to quality therapy, early control and detection, behavioral changes and alternative healing methods were examined.

November 15 marks the world Day of pancreatic cancer, which is observed all over the world. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate in all major cancers.

In almost all countries, it is the only serious cancer with a one-digit five-year survival rate. Globally, it is estimated that more than 430,000 people will die of pancreatic cancer this year.

Pancreatic cancer is very important to talk about. It is very inadequate. International estimates say that in South Africa 2500 cases have to be diagnosed and, unfortunately, 2100 of these patients will go away.

WARNING: Xolani Gwala launches # Change4Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancerous) cells are formed in the tissues of the pancreas. The pancreas is a gland located behind the stomach and in front of the spine. The pancreas produces digestive juices and hormones that regulate blood sugar. The cells called exocrine pancreatic cells produce digestive juices, while cells called endocrine pancreatic cells produce hormones. The majority of pancreatic cancers begin on exocrine cells.
