Pancreas cancer, or pancreatic Aden carcinoma, occurs when there is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the pancreas that forms a mass or a tumour. It is the deadliest solid organ tumour with fatality rates approaching 100%. Because the pancreas lies deep within the abdomen it is difficult for a doctor to feel a pancreatic tumour during an examination. Pancreatic cancer has no early warning signs and no effective screening or early detection tests. As a result, cancer is rarely discovered until it has metastasized and spread to other organs. The majority of patients diagnosed with this disease are older than 60 years of age (80%). Unfortunately pancreatic cancer can occur in younger people, especially those who have a family history.
