Pancreatic Cancer Support Group
Pancreatic cancer begins in the tissues of your pancreas. Pancreas releases enzymes that aid digestion and hormones that help manage your blood sugar. It contains glands that create pancreatic juices, hormones, and insulin. Cancer can affect the endocrine or the exocrine glands in the pancreas. Pancreatic cancer happens when uncontrolled cell growth begins in part of pancreas. Tumors develop, and these interfere with the way the pancreas works. Pancreatic cancer typically spreads rapidly to nearby organs. It is seldom detected in its early stages. Symptoms may include abdominal pain, weight loss, diarrhea, and jaundice. Treatments include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.
