Types of Cancer

Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a leading cause of cancer deaths. Most pancreatic cancer starts in the exocrine cells within the pancreas.


The symptoms of this cancer include:

  • Jaundice, the yellowing of the skin and white part of the eyes;
  • Pain in the abdomen;
  • Nausea and/or vomiting;
  • Lack of appetite;
  • Unexplained weight loss;
  • An enlarged gallbladder.

While anyone can get pancreatic cancer, you are more at risk if you smoke and if you are significantly overweight. For more information on pancreatic cancer, call 618-288-9044.
