In this exclusive video, Monique van Leerdam, MD, and Matthias Löhr, MD, PhD, discuss the need for better early detection of pancreatic cancer.

Van Leerdam, from Leiden University in the Netherlands, said there are currently programs in place for surveillance of patients at high-risk with MRI. However, early detection for the general population is much more difficult.

Löhr, from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, said patients and providers need to be aware of the early warning signs, including jaundice, weight loss and back pain, as well as other symptoms.
