What is the treatment?
Among the many diseases that show up a little late, pancreatic cancer symptoms are usually noticed only after the cancer has advanced to a certain stage. It is, therefore, a challenge to offer a clear pancreatic cancer prognosis, though there are treatment methods now, which have improved the possibilities of treating the disorder and extending the person's life. Pancreatic Surgery Treatment is the best possible solution to the disease. The ‘Whipple Procedure' is the surgical method most frequently adopted by gastroenterologists to treat this cancer. In this surgical procedure, either a part or the whole of the pancreas is removed, through an open process or through a laparoscopic procedure. The latter is the most preferred, being less interventionist and requiring very little time to recover.
The surgical removal of the pancreas to treat pancreatic cancer may last several hours. The primary reason for this is that the organ is located in a complicated part of the body and a lot of care has to be exercised. The post-surgery care can also take a few months since the survival rates after such surgeries were found to be quite low till some years back.
The success of surgery and treatment for pancreatic cancer itself depends on the stage at which the condition is first detected and the treatment started. There has been a gradual improvement in the success rate of the Whipple procedure and a person can be cured of the cancer and lead a near-normal life, subject to care being taken on the dietary and lifestyle habits.
