Why Is Pancreatic Cancer the Deadliest Cancer? Is There a Way to Prevent It?...

Pancreatic cancer is considered a deadly disease for several reasons. First, since it doesn’t produce a lot of specific symptoms, it is seldom detected in early stages when it is the most curable. Its symptoms only surface after it has spread to other organs. Therefore, around 80 percent of patients present with advanced stages. She further explained that “advanced” means that the cancer is locally advanced and cannot be removed surgically, or it has metastasized to other organs. The disease’s tendency to metastasize to other parts of the body is the second reason why it is so lethal.
