Pancreatic lesions

Pancreatic lesions

The pancreas consists of two parts - exocrine and endocrine. The first is involved in the digestive processes, and the second is responsible for the production of hormones that take part in the metabolism. When an organ fails, a failure occurs in all body systems. A person may not even suspect the presence of pathology. The disease develops slowly and does not manifest itself in the initial stage. Doctors often diagnose adenocarcinoma, which is a malignant tumor.

Why do tumors occur?

Specialists identify the following factors affecting the formation of tumors in the pancreas:

  • Bad habits;
  • Improper nutrition;
  • Interaction with chemicals;
  • The presence of chronic inflammation;
  • Living in adverse environmental conditions.

How is the disease manifested?

Patients whose tumors were found in the pancreas noted the presence of the following symptoms:

  • Increased appetite and weight gain;

  • Feeling of fear;
  • Cardiopalmus;
  • Heartburn;
  • Feeling of heaviness;
  • Dizziness;
  • Pain in the side;
  • Yellowness of the skin;

Based on the study, only an experienced specialist can draw up the correct therapy regimen taking into account the general condition of the patient, as well as the type and nature of the disease.
