Learn about pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic cancer develops in the tissues of the pancreas, an organ located behind the lower portion of the stomach. The pancreas aids in digestion, metabolism and insulin production. Cancer may develop in either the exocrine glands or the endocrine glands of the pancreas. About 95 percent of pancreatic cancers begin in the exocrine glands (the cells that produce the enzymes or "digestive juices" that help break down proteins, fats and starches).

Pancreatic cancer diagnostic evaluations

A thorough and accurate cancer diagnosis is the first step in developing your pancreatic cancer treatment plan. Our cancer experts will perform a comprehensive array of diagnostic tests to determine your pancreatic cancer type and stage. During your diagnostic evaluation, you may undergo a number of tests, such as a laparoscopy, chest X-ray or bone scan, to determine if the cancer has grown beyond the pancreas. The test results help us formulate treatment recommendations tailored to you and your needs.
