Pancreatic Tumor and Cancer

When aberrant cells in the pancreas grow out of control and form a tumour, pancreatic cancer develops. Exocrine cells and endocrine cells are the two types of cells in the pancreas, and each have different activities. Exocrine tumours account for around 94 percent of pancreatic malignancies. Tumors begin in the exocrine cells of the pancreas, which produce pancreatic enzymes that aid digestion. The majority of tumours in this categorization are adenocarcinomas. Neuroendocrine tumours of the pancreas account for around 6% of all pancreatic tumours. They can be benign or malignant, and their growth is slower than that of exocrine tumours.
