November marks Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, a time when people across the world come together to fight back against, and raise the profile of, pancreatic cancer!
As pancreatic cancer develops in the body, it may cause some abdominal pain, jaundice, lower back pain or indigestion. The symptoms and severity can vary for each person but it’s important that if you are experiencing any, which are persistent and not normal for you, that you visit your GP.
Patients with symptoms that suggest they have pancreatic cancer need quick investigation, usually by a CT scan and early referral to a specialist unit for other investigations.

I was uncertain where to turn when I received a diagnosis of cancer, but then remembered that my employer implemented MyCare coverage for our entire company. Thanks to MyCare for stepping in and easing my stress while providing options.

My daughter was recently diagnosed with a life threatening disease so we contacted MyCare right away. Upon review of her medical file and MRI scan, it was determined that she merely had a pinched nerve causing similar symptoms to that of MS. I thank my husband every day for pushing me to get a second opinion from MyCare.

MyCare assisted me with getting a diagnosis within a few weeks when my condition had not been diagnosed for over 6 years. I am fortunate that my boss added MyCare to our benefits as it literally saved my life!

I was initially skeptical about MyCare until I was recently told that I had a medical condition in which I needed to see a specialist. The wait was over 8 months and totally unacceptable so I contacted MyCare. They were able to assist me in a matter of weeks and got me a diagnosis without any further delays. I'm not sure what I would have done without them.

The team at MyCare were extremely helpful while dealing with a breast cancer scare which turned out to be less severe than originally thought.
