Comprehensive Information, Resources, and Support on Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer occurs due to uncontrolled division of abnormal cells present in the pancreas. Borderline resectable pancreatic cancer is an intermediate type of cancer between resectable and unresectable pancreatic cancer. These cancers are not confined within the pancreas and have extended towards the nearby blood vessels but are still believed to be surgically removable. Pancreatic cancers belonging to this category are neither clearly resectable nor unresectable.

Stage four pancreatic cancer is quite difficult to diagnose and treat. It usually develops deep in the abdomen, which makes it difficult to diagnose. Patients experience pancreatic cancer symptoms such as back pain, weight loss or jaundice when the cancer is already advanced and is difficult to treat.
