Pancreatic Cancer: Symptoms, Causes, Risk Factors and Treatments

What is Pancreatic Cancer?

The PancreasThe 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.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer?

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:

  • Pain in the stomach or back area
  • Jaundice – Yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes.
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Bowel changes
  • Indigestion
  • Sickness
  • Itching
  • Fever
  • Extreme fatigue/tiredness
  • Feeling unusually full after eating

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.

Causes and Risk Factors

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.

  • Smoking – Tobacco use is one of the major risk factors for cancer of the pancreas. It is believed that those who smoke are twice as likely to get the disease.
  • Obesity – As we know, obesity is a strong risk factor for many diseases, not just cancer. Being overweight increases your chance of getting pancreatic cancer by around 20%. Carrying extra weight around the middle may also be a risk factor for those who are not obese.
  • Chemical Exposure – Those who are exposed to chemicals in the workplace are more at risk.
  • Age – Almost all cases are in those over the age of 45 with two-thirds of cases in those over the age of 65.
  • Gender – If you are a male, you are around 30% more likely to get pancreatic cancer.
  • Type 2 Diabetes – Evidence suggests that those with type 2 diabetes are more at risk of pancreatic cancer.
  • Dietary Factors – Although there is no clear evidence, it is thought that those who eat a lot of red and processed meats are generally more at risk.
  • Physical Activity – It is believed that those who are physically inactive are more likely to develop this form of cancer.

5 Year Survival Rates

Localized: 27%

Regional: 10.7%

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.

The Budwig Approach

Using the Budwig approach, the success rate is very encouraging! Instead of just looking at cancer as a physical disease, or instead of just removing a tumor, the Budwig Center looks at and corrects the four leading causes of cancer, which are:

  1. Toxins – chemical and emotional toxicity
  2. Pathogens – viruses, parasites, fungus, etc.
  3. Compromised Immune System
  4. Nutritional Deficiencies
