Pancreatic cancer is one of the most asthmatic diseases with the highest mortality in the total number of patients.
On Thursday, November 15, people around the world will remember the need to fight the disease.
The Olomouc University Hospital joins the World Pancreatic Cancer Day this year with a seminar and a new clinic's illumination.
Olomouc City Hall "decorate" the historic building dress in a purple color.
Experts warn that 2,100 pancreatic cancer cases will be diagnosed in the Czech Republic this year.
"2000 patients die. Currently, there are no standard screening tests or methods for early detection of this disease. Therefore, development and research continue to look for symptoms – disease markers." Early diagnosis is very important, "said Chestmery Neorals, head of the Olomouc First Surgeon Clinic.
Most cases of pancreatic cancer are unknown, but studies have revealed risk factors.
"They include family history, diabetes, pancreatitis, smoking, obesity or eating disorders," Neoral said.
World day pancreatic cancer is a violet color that now marks the world's largest building. This year's Olomouc City Council meeting has also joined an initiative that will allow the city hall to be strongly illuminated.
