The exact cause of pancreatic cancer is not known but some high risks are known, such as:

1-Diabetes: a diabetic person has 3to5 times greater risk of pancreatic cancer

2-Obesity and inactivity

3-smoking-due to presence of carcinogenic compounds in cigarettes which leads to inhibition of cell death

4-pancreatic cysts and chronic pancreatitis

I am very known about this cancer, as my brother died cause of pancreatic cancer. He drinks alcohol occasionally, as a result it become acid . when we took him to hospital he was not able to stool neither he could urine.When we talk about this disease he told that if he had drink alcohol on regular basis but on small amount on regular basis, this disease would not happen, but he drank so occasionally that it destroys his all the organs.
