Did you know?

Few risk factors for developing pancreatic cancer are defined. Family history of the disease, smoking, age, and diabetes are risk factors.

Cancer of the pancreas is more common in men than in women. This may be, in part, because men are more likely to smoke than women.

The risk of this cancer increases with age: almost all cases occur in persons older than 50 years.
