You Still Have Alternative Treatment Options for Pancreatic Cancer
The pancreas is a large organ located in the lower part of the stomach that helps in the digestion process and the metabolism of sugars by releasing hormones when our body needs them. The hormones are released into our bloodstream and are carried throughout the body. The hormones that come from the pancreas help our body derive energy from the food we eat. For instance, the hormone insulin helps regulate the amount of sugar that is found in our blood.
There are many different types of cancer found in the pancreas, however the majority originate in the ducts that pass pancreatic fluids into the stomach. The least common type stems from within the pancreatic cells, called islet cells, which actually produce hormones like insulin. As pancreatic cancer continues to progress, the tumor that forms may spread to organs near the pancreas, such as the small intestine, and also cause cancer cells to spread throughout the body. The spreading of cancer cells can often result in the formation of new tumors in the liver, lymph nodes, and occasionally in the bones or lungs.
According to the National Cancer Institute, about 26,000 men and women in the US are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer every year. Pancreatic cancer is the 2nd most common type of cancer and is the 4th leading cause of deaths in cancer patients. Even with advanced medicine, the same number of people will die from this disease as the number of people being newly diagnosed. This is reason enough to start considering alternative treatments for cancer.
