Patient Care and Appointments

Mayo Clinic cares for nearly 1,100 people with pancreatic cancer each year. In addition, the High-Risk Pancreas Clinic offers people at high risk of developing pancreatic cancer an evaluation and screening program aimed at earlier detection and diagnosis. Pancreatic cancer often doesn't cause symptoms of its own, so it's typically not detected until after it has spread to other organs. Targeted screening for people at higher risk can help doctors detect pancreatic cancer earlier, when it's most curable.

Under the direction of Dr. Majumder, the High-Risk Pancreas Clinic at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, is specifically dedicated to improving outcomes for patients facing this challenging disease.

Structured under an innovative, collaborative clinical model, the High-Risk Pancreas Clinic serves as a translational research hub for the early detection of pancreatic cancer. Working alongside primary care physicians, genetic counselors and other practitioners, Dr. Majumder and his team are focusing on identifying people at high risk of pancreatic cancer and continually developing new, accurate, cost-effective and practical approaches for screening and surveillance.
