Who Is At Risk?

Although there are no clear studies to define who warrants surveillance, at this time it may be possible to obtain guidance from experience with other familial GI cancer syndromes. The following patients are at increased risk and should be considered candidates for surveillance: a) an individual who has 2 or more first degree relatives (parent, sibling, or child) with pancreatic cancer, b) an individual with one first degree relative diagnosed with pancreatic cancer under the age of 50, c) an individual with 2 or more relatives with pancreatic cancer, one of whom has pancreatic cancer at an early age, and d) a person with a genetic disorder that predisposes to pancreatic cancer, such as Peutz-Jeghers syndrome or Familial Atypical Mole and Melanoma syndrome .
