Preventing pancreatic cancer thanks to knowledge of your DNA

 The pancreas is an organ in the abdomen that produces enzymes and hormones, including insulin. Pancreatic cancer generally starts in the ducts of the pancreas and is referred to as an adenocarcinoma. In 2014, 2,292 people contracted pancreatic cancer, 85% of whom were over the age of 60. In many cases pancreatic cancer is only detected at a late stage and the prognosis is extremely poor.

Pancreatic cancer and heredity

The risk of pancreatic cancer is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of developing pancreatic cancer.
