Pancreatic Cancer

Pan­cre­at­ic can­cer is a dis­ease in which can­cer­ous cells form in the tis­sues of the pan­creas. Due to the loca­tion of the pan­creas, pan­cre­at­ic can­cer may be dif­fi­cult to detect and is often diag­nosed in more advanced stages of the dis­ease. If you have any symp­toms, they may be stom­ach or low­er back pain, loss of appetite, jaun­dice, blood clots, and unex­plained weight loss. Smok­ing, obe­si­ty, diets high in fat con­tent, alco­hol con­sump­tion, work­ing with pes­ti­cides and chem­i­cals, liv­er dam­age and dia­betes are all risk fac­tors of pan­cre­at­ic cancer.
