What is Pancreatic Cancer?
The pancreas is an organ of the digestive system and endocrine systems in human beings. This organ is located in the abdominal cavity right below the stomach and functions as Gland. Our pancreas releases enzymes that aid digestion and produce hormones that help manage your blood sugar levels and play a crucial report in the digestion of food. Now studies explain pancreatic cancer as a rare type of cancer that usually forms in the cells of the pancreas. Pancreatic Cancer begins in the tissues of your pancreas. Pancreatic cancer occurs when cells in your pancreas develop mutations in their DNA. These mutations command cells to grow uncontrollably. These accumulating cells tend to form a tumour. When left untreated, pancreatic cancer cells can spread to nearby organs and blood vessels and distant parts of the body. This type of cancer is often detected late, spreads rapidly and has a poor prognosis.
