Our Philosophy About Pancreatic Cancer
Pancreatic cancer is a serious disease. Taking an aggressive rational stance against pancreas cancer, at the earliest possible time, supported by the best medical team, and treated in the most appropriate manner gives the best chance for pancreatic cancer survival. We believe in strong patient-physician bonds, scientifically-based pancreatic cancer treatment, and that comfort can come from knowing that everything that reasonably can be done – is being done. That the best approach is meeting cancer of the pancreas head-on and armed with the best available information.
We speak of pancreatic cancer as if it is one thing, but there are many kinds of pancreatic cancer; one classification had this number at 17. A frequent anatomic / physiologic action of the pancreas is that it tends to produce cysts (and sometimes even “pseudocysts” – pockets of fluid often seen as a result of pancreatitis). More Here!
