Pancreatic cancer can be difficult to diagnose because the pancreas lies deep in the body, and because pancreatic cancer typically causes few symptoms. As a consequence, many people with pancreatic cancer are diagnosed after cancer has spread to other organs.

If you have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a large cancer center like Duke provides you with access to the latest diagnostic and treatment advances as soon as possible. Providing you with the best possible patient care is our number one priority.
