Pancreatic Cancer Cost In United Arab Emirates

Cost of Pancreatic Cancer in United Arab Emirates: Detailed Overview



Pancrease is the organ situated behind the lower part of the stomach and secrets digestive enzymes and hormones that help to regulate blood sugar levels. cancer and cancerous growth arising in pancreas are called pancreatic cancer. it is quite rare in occurrence and mostly malignant in nature. it has a poor prognosis as no specific sign and symptoms are seen in the early stage. At a later stage also sudden weight loss and loss of appetite are common symptoms that are also non-specific. It is often called 'silent' cancer because of no sigh and symptoms shown.
when we talk about treatment, it totally depends upon the stage and extent of cancerous spread to nearby organs. if surgery is required then we have to remove the complete pancreas by the process of pancreatectomy. then to further reduced the progression of cancer we have to give chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Palliative care post-surgery is needed to aid in digestion.
