Pancreatic cancer predominantly occurs in males between their 7th and 9th dacades of life. Usually the tumor is localised in the head of the pancreas less often in its corpus and rarely in its tail. To treat this cancer surgery and chemo- or radiotherapy are used. Unfortulately, in most patients, when the cancer is diagnosed, distant metastases are found. Even with the proper treatment, only 2% of patients live five years after diagnosis. In the above pictures CT scans of pancreatic cancer are shown.
