Select consultant name Select a cancer type What Is Pancreatic Cancer Pancreatic Cancer occurs when gland tissue in the pancreas, vital in helping the body create insulin, mutates and prevents the pancreas from properly carrying out its functions. It is quite a hard disease to diagnose as the symptoms occur slowly and is a very difficult form of cancer to treat. 8,000 people are diagnosed with having pancreatic every year in the UK. Some of the causes for this include; diet, smoking (accounts for roughly 30%), age (most common for those over 65), body weight, alcohol, family history and previous medical conditions such as diabetes and chronic pancreatitis. There is still no definite cause for the disease though. One of the most notable signs that someone may have pancreatic cancer is that they’ll have jaundice, due to the bile duct being blocked by a tumour. This results in skin seeming yellow and skin becoming itchy. Other symptoms of pancreatic cancer can include; indigestion, loss of appetite, nausea, bloating after eating, tiredness and diarrhoea. Getting private treatment for pancreatic cancer is easily achievable here at the LOC. With dedicated consultants who specifically work in the field of treating pancreatic cancer, we can deliver a higher level of care and understanding to your diagnosis.
