What Is Pancreatic Cancer? Every Thing You Need To Know Here


Diabetes can develop if a tumor interferes with the pancreas working properly. This is because the pancreas normally produces the hormone insulin which the body needs to regulate the amount of sugar in the blood. People with diabetes often feel extremely thirsty, pass more urine than normal, lose weight and feel weak and lacking in energy. Diabetes is particularly associated with pancreatic cancer in older people. If someone over 50 has developed type 2 diabetes within the past two years, with no other explanation, their GP should consider the possibility of pancreatic cancer.
