PanCAN strongly recommends that all pancreatic cancer patients talk with their doctor about genetic testing for inherited mutations and biomarker testing of their tumor tissue to help determine the best treatment options. If you have a parent, child or sibling diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, talk with your doctor about genetic testing. PanCAN Patient Services can provide you with information on testing and help you prepare for a conversation with your doctor.
