Pancreatic cancer can be deadly and often isn't easy to treat because it has metastasized too far by the time it is finally caught. This is why it is crucial to pay attention to the warning signs and address them as early as possible.

With the pancreas being located so deeply within the body, warning signs tend to not be evident at first, which leads to a greater possibility of having a terminal case.

The pancreas is located deep within the body, just below the liver. Tumors can grow in both the body and tail areas of the pancreas, and the larger they grow, the more pain they can cause in the abdomen. When pancreatic cancer spreads to the nerves surrounding the pancreas, pain can occur in the back as well. Since back and abdominal pain are both fairly common symptoms in many health conditions, other causes should be ruled out before pancreatic cancer is diagnosed. Other co-occurring symptoms of pancreatic cancer should be taken into consideration when addressing concerns with a doctor.
