Cancer Websites, Pancreatic Cancer — By on August 19, 2008 at 3:03 pm

The Mayo Clinic is a not-for-profit medical practice dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of virtually every type of complex illness.

On their website you will find information and resources for the treatment of pancreatic cancer that are particularly helpful.

Treatment for pancreatic cancer depends on the stage and location of the cancer as well as on your age, overall health and personal preferences.

The first goal of pancreatic cancer treatment is to eliminate the cancer, when possible. When that isn’t an option, the focus may be on preventing the pancreatic cancer from growing or causing more harm.

When pancreatic cancer is advanced and treatments aren’t likely to offer a benefit, your doctor may suggest ways to relieve symptoms and make you as comfortable as possible.

There are many articles including; definitions, symptoms, causes, when to seek medical advice, tests and diagnosis, complications, treatment and drugs, prevention, coping and support and alternative medicine.

Please visit the pancreatic cancer section of The Mayo Clinic for an informative guide to pancreatic cancer.
