The pancreas is present beneath the stomach and assists in the digestion process. In addition, it plays a vital role in metabolic homeostasis. The pancreas secretes several enzymes that help in digestion. It also releases hormones that regulate sugar levels in the blood. Pancreatic cancer initiates in the pancreatic cells. Most commonly, cancer develops in the ducts that carry the digestive enzymes from the pancreas. Unfortunately, most patients do not have early symptoms of pancreatic cancer, resulting in its diagnosis in the advanced stage.
