What is Pancreas?

The pancreas is a small organ located behind the stomach in your abdomen. It has two main functions:

Digestive Function: The pancreas produces digestive enzymes that help break down the food you eat. These enzymes are released into the small intestine to aid in the digestion of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.

Hormonal Function: The pancreas also plays a crucial role in regulating blood sugar levels. It produces insulin, a hormone that helps cells in your body absorb and use glucose (sugar) for energy. This helps keep your blood sugar at a balanced level.

Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the pancreas, an organ located behind the stomach. The pancreas plays a crucial role in digestion and blood sugar regulation. In simple terms, pancreatic cancer occurs when cells in the pancreas begin to grow uncontrollably, forming a tumor.

Risk factors for pancreatic cancer include age, smoking, family history, certain genetic conditions, and chronic pancreatitis. Treatment options may include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, but the effectiveness depends on the stage at which the cancer is diagnosed.

Pancreatitis

Acute Pancreatitis

Acute pancreatitis is a sudden and severe inflammation of the pancreas that occurs over a short period

It is often triggered by gallstones blocking the pancreatic duct, alcohol consumption, certain medications, infections, trauma, or high levels of triglycerides in the blood.

Acute pancreatitis can cause sudden and intense abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and fever. It requires prompt medical attention.

Chronic Pancreatitis

Chronic pancreatitis is a long-term inflammation of the pancreas that persists over time, leading to permanent damage to the organ.

Chronic pancreatitis is often associated with long-term alcohol abuse, but it can also result from recurrent episodes of acute pancreatitis, genetic factors, or other conditions.

Symptoms include persistent abdominal pain, weight loss, malabsorption (difficulty absorbing nutrients), and diabetes if the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas are affected.

Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer

If you notice any persistent or worsening symptoms, it's essential to consult a healthcare professional for a thorough evaluation. Common symptoms of pancreatic cancer include:
Abdominal Pain
Digestive Problem
Fatigue
Vomiting
Loss of Appetite

Diagnosis of Pancreatitis


Diagnosing pancreatic cancer typically involves a combination of medical history assessment, physical examination, imaging tests, and laboratory tests. Here's an overview of the diagnostic process:

The doctor will begin by discussing your medical history, including any risk factors or symptoms you may be experiencing. They will also conduct a physical examination to check for signs of pancreatic cancer, such as abdominal tenderness or jaundice.

Blood tests may be conducted to check for specific markers associated with pancreatic cancer. Elevated levels of certain substances, such as CA 19-9 and CEA, may indicate the presence of pancreatic cancer, although these markers are not exclusive to this cancer.
