Pancreatic Cancer

What is pancreatic cancer?
Pancreatic cancer occurs when abnormal cells grow out of control in your pancreas, a small organ located behind your stomach. These pancreatic cancer cells rarely cause symptoms until they have spread to other parts of the body. Then, symptoms may include pain in the upper belly or the back, weight loss, extreme tiredness, and jaundice.
