World Pancreatic Cancer Day is observed on the third Thursday of November, every year. [Video]

World Pancreatic Cancer Day is on the third Thursday of November every year — this year, it falls on November 18, and we’re here to show you how to observe this day. It has been almost 10 years since this day was observed for the first time to raise awareness that pancreatic cancer is one of the toughest cancers. This day allows communities to come together to raise awareness and support the people battling pancreatic cancer.In 1858, Jacob Mendez Da Costa, an American physician, studied Giovanni’s work, conducted the first microscopic evaluation of adenocarcinoma (later named pancreatic cancer), and identified it as a true disease. In 1898, Alessandro Codivilla, an Italian surgeon, operated on a tumor in the pancreas; however, the patient did not survive. William Stewart Halsted from Johns Hopkins Hospital did the first successful resection of cancer.#PancreaticCancerDay #November #OnThisDay
