Pancreatic Cancer Screening includes Genetic Testing and Endoscopic Ultrasound.

Screening of pancreatic cancer can result into early detection of the condition. At the moment no recommendations are made for those under the normal risk group due to the fact that no screening test has been proved to reduce the risk of death from this cancer. Genetic testing for those at an increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer mainly tests the gene mutations. People at high risk are also tested for this type of cancer. Endoscopic ultrasound is done to detect the presence of cancer.
