Pancreatic Cancer






Pancreatic Cancer


It is an organ most people are vaguely aware of and when asked will not be able to sate its function. It is a leaf shaped gland situated in the upper abdomen towards the spine at the back. It plays an important role in producing digestive enzymes which help to breakdown complex molecules of fat proteins and carbohydrates. As part of your endocrine system it produces hormones like insulin, glucagon, somatostatin and pancreatic polypeptide. The first two enzymes will regulate your blood sugar levels.
