About Pancreatic Cancer
Pancreatic cancer begins in the tissues of the pancreas, which secretes enzymes that aid in digestion and hormones that help regulate the metabolism of sugars. The exocrine and endocrine cells of the pancreas form different types of tumors. Exocrine tumors are the most common type, and approximately 95% of cancers are adenocarcinoma, which starts in gland cells. Tumors of the endocrine pancreas are uncommon, accounting for less than 4% of all pancreatic cancers. As a group, they are known as pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) or islet cell tumors. Pancreatic cancer is rarely detected in early stages, and has a poor prognosis.
