The Pancreas plays an important role in the function of the body. The Pancreas secretes enzymes that aid in digestion, and the Pancreas also secretes hormones that help to regulate the metabolism of carbohydrates. The reason for the serious nature of Pancreatic Cancer has to do with the ability for the cancer to spread rapidly and do so in most cases without being detected in the early stages. Because of the Pancreatic Cancer facts discussed above, Pancreatic Cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer related deaths. Consider the following treatments Pancreatic Tumors:
