  • The pancreas is an organ in the top part of your tummy.
  • It helps you digest your food and makes hormones, such as insulin.
  • How serious pancreatic cancer is depends on where it is in the pancreas, how big it is, if it has spread, and your general health.


It's important to get any symptoms of pancreatic cancer checked as soon as possible.
