Why going to China for cancer treatment?

Pancreatic cancer is a malignant tumor that forms in the tissues of the pancreas, an organ responsible for producing digestive enzymes and insulin. Early detection of pancreatic cancer is crucial because symptoms often do not appear until the disease has progressed to an advanced stage. Common symptoms include abdominal or back pain, unexplained weight loss, jaundice, changes in stool color, and loss of appetite. Identifying these symptoms promptly allows for earlier diagnosis and intervention, which can improve the chances of successful treatment and overall prognosis. Therefore, awareness of the signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer is vital for individuals to seek medical attention and receive appropriate care as soon as possible.

Pancreatic cancer often doesn’t cause symptoms until the disease is advanced. When they happen, signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer may include:

  • Loss of appetite.

  • Yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes, called jaundice.
