Pancreatic Cancer

Overview

Pancreatic cancer begins in the tissues of the pancreas, an organ that makes enzymes for digestion and hormones to regulate blood sugar levels. It is rarely detected at an early stage and, at advanced stages, is difficult to cure.

Approximately 55,000 new cases of pancreatic cancer are diagnosed annually in the U.S. It is slightly more common in men that women.

The Patricia Lynch Cancer Center at Holy Name has a multi-disciplinary team of experienced and skilled surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurses and support staff to treat pancreatic cancer. Together they provide a compassionate, unified approach in creating a personal strategy for each patient's unique medical, emotional and lifestyle needs.
