Pancreatic Cancer Including Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma and other Forms of Exocrine Pancreas Cancers Are Difficult to Diagnose and Are Often Not Diagnosed Until Late in the Course of the Disease
Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death for both men and women and is one of the most deadly of all types of cancer. This year approximately 45,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and about 38,000 will die from it. One of the reasons that pancreatic cancer is so deadly is that it it difficult to diagnose and the diagnosis is often made late in the course of the disease. Early detection of pancreatic cancer is essential and will greatly improve a person's chances of surviving the disease. As such, people that have taken diabetes drugs, especially those with symptoms of weight loss, dark urine and clay-colored stools, back pain, and jaundice, should seek advice from a qualified medical professional as to if they may have pancreatic cancer and what symptoms they should be aware of to detect any early onset of pancreatic cancer.
The Most Common Type of Pancreatic Cancer is Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Which Includes About 90% of Cases of Pancreatic Cancer: Pancreactic Adenocarcinoma is a Form of Exocrine Pancreas Cancer
The most common kind of pancreatic cancer is pancreatic adenocarcinoma and includes about 90% of the cases of pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is a cancerous overgrowth of exocrine pancreatic cells and is unfortunately commonly undetected until it is too late for the patient. Pancreatic adenocarcinoma because of late detection can often result a fatal diagnosis with very limited survival time. Other forms of exocrine pancreas cancer include: intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN), adenosquamous carcinomas, acinar cell carcinomas, mucinous cystadenocarcinomas, signet ring cell carcinomas, hepatoid carcinomas, colloid carcinomas, undifferentiated carcinomas, pancreatoblastomas, and undifferentiated carcinomas with osteoclast-like giant cells.
