Pancreatic Cancer Diagnosis

If pancreatic cancer is suspected, your doctor will take a thorough medical history and perform a physical exam to look for any suspicious masses or swelling. If needed, your doctor may recommend several tests to diagnose or rule out the disease.

Pancreatic Cancer Diagnostic Options Include:

  • CT scan
  • MRI
  • Ultrasound
  • Cholangiopancreatography
  • PET scan
  • Angiography
  • Biopsy

Pancreatic Cancer Treatment

Early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is difficult. With few early symptoms and fast progression, many people are diagnosed at advanced stages. That makes specialized treatment essential.

Levine Cancer Institute has a highly trained and experienced team of specialists focused on treating pancreatic cancer, allowing you to stay close to home while receiving the most effective, comprehensive care available. Part of our nationally recognized hepatopancreaticobiliary (HPB) program, this team is composed of renowned experts in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, oncology, radiation oncology, interventional radiology, pathology and pancreas surgery.

Pancreatic Cancer Treatment Options

Our fellowship-trained physicians offer many techniques and treatments for pancreatic cancer, including:

  • Laparoscopic/robotic pancreatic resection
  • Minimally invasive approach to HPB surgery
  • Radiofrequency ablation/microwave ablation
  • Chemotherapy and transarterial chemo
  • Radiation and radioembolization
