The pancreas is approximately 15cm in length and commonly described as being in the shape of a tadpole with a larger head area narrowing to a tail. The pancreas is made up of two different functioning units, which are the Exocrine and the Endocrine Pancreas.
Both of these separate units have a different function. It is the job of the Exocrine pancreas to create enzymes that aid digestion, while the Endocrine pancreas produces hormones.
Cancer can develop in either part, but 95% of pancreatic cancers are of the Exocrine type. Around 65% of tumors will develop in the head of the pancreas and 30% in the body and tail. The other 5% develops in the pancreas as a whole.
As the pancreas is made up of these two separate units, symptoms depend on whether the Exocrine or Endocrine pancreas has been affected. As a rule, the following are the most common symptoms experienced by patients:
Please remember that a number of these symptoms can be caused by entirely different factors and do not, in and of themselves, signify pancreatic cancer.
It is important to note that there can be many risk factors for someone getting a specific form of cancer. Some risk factors can be changed such as smoking or lack of exercise and some cannot, such as family history.
It is also important to remember that having one or more risk factors does not altogether mean that you will get Pancreatic cancer.
Distant: 2.4 %
Localized means that the cancer is only present in the pancreas. Regional means that it has spread outside of the pancreas. Distant means that cancer has spread to another organ or organs within the body.
