It’s not clear what causes pancreatic cancer in most cases. Doctors have identified factors, such as smoking, that increase your risk of developing the disease. The are a few other risk factors that must be taken into consideration:

  • Chronic inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis)
  • Diabetes
  • Family history of genetic syndromes that can increase cancer risk, including a BRCA2 gene mutation, Lynch syndrome and familial atypical mole-malignant melanoma (FAMMM) syndrome
  • Family history of pancreatic cancer
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Older age, as most people are diagnosed after age 65

Symptoms are rarely noticeable in the initial stage, which is why pancreatic cancer is often referred as “silent” disease.
The most common symptom’s are-

-Stomach pain
-Loss of appetite
-Weight loss

These symptoms are usually ignored, and are discovered at a later stage, which at a time is not treatable.
Until now, there is only one experimental therapy carried out so far to treat Pancreatic Cancer.
The experimental therapy included use of two drugs – Trametinib and Hydroxychloroquine. These drugs have the potential to slow down the process of abnormal cell division as well as growth caused by a genetic mutation, increasing a patient’s life span.
This therapy was carried on 66-year-old Gordon Chamberlain, read his
Survival story about pancreatic cancer


I believe that the main cause of cancer is constant stressful situations, imbalances in the nervous system, etc. Unfortunately, very few people care about their emotional state. People should at least periodically use sedatives, preferably on an organic basis, such as At least you will be more resistant to stress.
