Why going to China for cancer treatment?

Pancreatic cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the pancreas, an organ located behind the stomach. The pancreas plays a crucial role in digestion by producing enzymes that help break down food, as well as hormones like insulin that regulate blood sugar levels.

Pancreatic cancer typically begins in the cells that line the ducts of the pancreas, which are responsible for carrying digestive juices to the small intestine. It can also start in the cells that produce hormones, although this is less common.

Pancreatic cancer is often difficult to detect in its early stages because it may not cause noticeable symptoms. As a result, it is often diagnosed at a more advanced stage when it has spread to other parts of the body.

Treatment options for pancreatic cancer may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of these approaches, depending on the stage of the cancer and other factors. However, prognosis for pancreatic cancer is often poor, especially if it is not detected until later stages. Early detection and intervention can significantly improve outcomes.
