Tumor shock leads to volunteer crusade to know early signs of devastating disease

Judi Adams never imagined that a sore back and the occasional stomachache could be signs of something much more serious: an eight-inch tumor.

Her vague symptoms were followed late last year by an “out of the blue” onset of nausea and loss of appetite.

Doctors told Mrs. Adams after a series of medical tests that there was a lump in her pancreas.

She went to the hospital to have a biopsy of the nodule and woke up after surgery to find she had pancreatic cancer.

Part of her pancreas and stomach had been removed, along with her spleen.

Ms Adams, 55, thought her back pain was caused by working much of her time in an office environment and experienced “a twinge” with exertion.

Cancer is often diagnosed late
