What is the danger of pancreatic cancer?
Pancreatic cancer is one of the ten most aggressive types of oncology, therefore only early diagnosis and modern treatment methods give the patient a chance of survival.
That's why that something is wrong with the organ is indicated by different symptoms. Attacks of nausea and abdominal pain radiating to the back may appear. Against the background of malignant processes, urine becomes dark, depression, thrombosis, diabetes mellitus begin, a person loses weight and complains of depression of consciousness. In the later stages of the disease, the listed symptoms intensify. In addition, swelling, pressure sores and severe weakness appear.
For any symptoms that may indicate a possible development of pancreatic cancer, the patient should undergo ultrasound and CT as soon as possible.

a combined program.
But still, the main method of treating a pancreatic tumor is surgery : complete or partial removal of the organ (the cost of the procedure depends on its complexity). In particular, for cancer of the head or neck of the pancreas, in most cases, it is surgical treatment (Whipple operation) that is used, which gives better results than chemotherapy. But if earlier the organ was completely removed, then nowadays partial resection is also possible.
Targeted therapy for cancer affecting the pancreas is the best example of the fact that oncology as a science is developing rapidly, and the disease can be treated without surgery ... Moreover, the technique eliminates the need for a hospital stay. This is an innovative development that Israel has been successfully using for about 5 years. The drugs of this group (usually in tablet form) are able to remove the tumor in the pancreas without causing damage to healthy tissues.
