Cancer can be a difficult disease to treat and therefore it is important for patients to be treated at a medical center that offers cancer treatments that involve surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, medical treatment gastroenterologists and dieticians.
Presently, surgery offers the best chance for a cure and long term management of pancreatic cancer. However not every patient is eligible for surgical cancer treatment.
