Links

There is an enormous amount of information on pancreatic cancer on the www and much of it is of variable quality. You should use the www for general information but do not believe everything you read.

CanSur recommends the following sites for their reputation, accuracy and understanding of modern medical practice but no on-line source can replace the advice of your own doctor. Never use a www site for primary medical advice of any kind.
