I would like to receive additional information from Levine Cancer Institute.

Pancreatic cancer begins in the tissues of the pancreas and occurs when there is uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells.

The pancreas is an organ in the abdomen that lies horizontally behind the lower part of the stomach. The pancreas serves two purposes:

  1. Secreting pancreatic enzymes that aid in food digestion
  2. Making hormones such as insulin

Pancreatic Cancer Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer may not appear until later stages of the disease and may include:

  • Upper abdominal pain or back pain
  • Yellowing of skin and whites of the eyes (jaundice)
  • Dark urine
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
