Pancreatic Cancer (Gastrointestinal Cancers)
Pancreatic Cancer Treatment
Pancreatic cancer can spread quickly and, unfortunately, early detection is not all that common. When you are diagnosed with this condition, it is therefore essential that treatment begins as quickly as possible. Screening is not an effective way of detecting pancreatic cancer, so patients with a family history of the disease should inform Dr. Yamini so suitable measures for improving outcomes can be taken as part of your consultation and treatment plan.
If you have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, Dr. Yamini can provide treatment to remove cancerous tumors. Surgery can be an effective treatment option for pancreatic cancer depending on the location and size of the tumors. However, there is a high rate of reoccurring tumors with pancreatic cancer.
Surgery may involve removing tumors from the pancreatic head or tail or removing the pancreas completely. In some cases, pancreatic cancer may also impact on nearby blood vessels. In all cases, surgeries are complex.
