I have had appendix cancer that spread & thyroid cancer. My dad had pancreatic cancer. I am curious about men1/2 & endocrine cancers. I'm only 37...?

CANCER: Is the DaVinci Robotic System used for pancreatic cancer in any major medical center in the U.S.?

Real science is utterly cutthroat and if a danger to humans could be proved, it would be by now. Most folks share my skepticism.

Despite the dark conspiracy talk, it's almost all junk science (correlations, huge doses of chemicals on cells / animals) & mainstream scientists ignore it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cancer of the pancreas are fast growing abnormal cells. These can be adenocarcinoma that can grow quickly, difficult to diagnose at an early stage & only sometimes can be removed with surgery. Endocrine cancers tend to be slower growing & may produce hormones & are surgically removed. Cystic cancers also may have better success with surgery. All of these can be difficult ...Read more
