About pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells appear in the tissue of the pancreas. The pancreas is an organ located in the abdomen which produces both digestive enzymes and insulin. The pancreas is made up of two different kinds of tissue with different functions: the exocrine pancreas, which secretes enzymes into the digestive tract, which help to break down fats and proteins, and the endocrine pancreas, which secretes glucagon and insulin into the bloodstream in order to control blood sugar levels [1].

Around 338,000 new cases of pancreatic cancer are diagnosed every year, making up for 2.4 % of all cancer diagnoses [2]. In more than 80 % of the cases, pancreatic cancer develops in the exocrine pancreas. About 75 % of all exocrine pancreatic cancers occur within the head or neck of the pancreas, 15 to 20% in the body and 5 to 10 % in the tail of the pancreas [1].

The above products may be suitable for treating patients with pancreatic cancer. We recommend that you discuss the suitability of possible treatment options with your doctor. For further information please contact our support team at support@thesocialmedwork.com.
