A detailed overview of pancreatic cancer and treatment options # Change4Cancer


Gsvaolani Gvelja hosted the second edition of # Change4Cancer.

Joining him was a panel of various stakeholders who looked at many of the answers to the questions about the disease.

They looked at issues related to access to quality treatment, early detection and detection, behavior change and alternative treatment methods.

November 15 celebrates the World Pancreatic cancer day, which is being watched around the world. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate in all major cancers.

In almost all countries, it is the only major cancer with a single-digit five-year survival rate. It is estimated that 430,000 people will die of pancreatic cancer this year.

Pancreatic cancer is very important for talking. It's very reported. International estimates say that in South Africa there should be 2500 cases diagnosed, and unfortunately, 2100 of these patients will pass.

Pancreatic cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancerous) cells form in the pancreatic tissue. Pancreas is the gland located behind the stomach and in front of the spine. Pancreas produces digestive juices and hormones that regulate blood sugar. Cells called pancreatic exocrine cells produce digestive juices, while cells called endocrine pancreatic cells produce hormones. Most pancreatic cancer begins in exocrine cells.
