Datamonitor Healthcare Oncology: Pancreatic Cancer Market Spotlight
February 21, 2019Pancreatic cancer occurs when the healthy cells of the pancreas begin to grow uncontrollably and form tumors. As they grow, these tumors can interfere with the functioning of the pancreas, spread to nearby organs and blood vessels, and eventually spread to other body parts through a process known as metastasis.
Patients with early-stage pancreatic cancer may not experience symptoms, but when they do occur, they may be similar to other medical conditions such as pancreatitis or ulcers. As the disease progresses, patients may experience other symptoms such as jaundice, dark urine, itchy skin, stomach bloating, pain in the upper back or upper abdomen, weakness, indigestion or heartburn, painful swelling of a leg or an arm due to blood clots, fever, chills, loss of appetite or unintentional weight loss, nausea and vomiting, and steatorrhea.
