What is Pancreatic cancer?

When abnormal cells in the pancreas develop and divide out of control, they create a tumor, which is called pancreatic cancer.

In pancreatic cancer, cells divide to generate new cells when the body requires them. Cells die as they age and are replaced by new cells and sometimes this procedure can occasionally break.

What is Abdominal Pain?

Abdominal pain is a type of discomfort that occurs in the abdomen. The lower boundary of the ribs and diaphragm above, the pelvic bone (pubic ramus) below, and the flanks on each side define the abdomen. Although pain can begin from the tissues of the abdominal wall that surround its cavity (such as the skin and muscles), the phrase "abdominal pain" means discomfort caused by organs within the abdominal cavity. The stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, gallbladder, spleen, and pancreas are among the organs that make up the abdomen.
