Pancreatic cancer develops in the pancreas, which is located behind the stomach. The pancreas is responsible for the production and secretion of endocrine and exocrine and for regulating digestion. Adenocarcinoma is the most common type of pancreatic cancer, accounting approximately for 85% of all pancreatic cancers. Adenocarcinomas usually form within the pancreas and can spread to other organs if not diagnosed early on.
Although the exact cause has not been identified, such factors as alcoholism, smoking and excessive consumption of grilled and red meat are thought to increase the likelihood of developing pancreatic cancer. It should be noted that more than 94% of pancreatic cancer patients have been found to have a gene abnormality, something that has not been noticed in any other form of cancer. It is likely that genetic research will play a vital role in creating new measures to diagnose pancreatic cancer earlier and thereby improve the survival rate. Until then, people with a mutation of gene p53 are required to be examined regularly in order to avoid any risk of developing pancreatic cancer.
