The pancreas is a 6-inch, fish-shaped gland that is wedged between the stomach and the spine. The organ is charged with producing insulin and other hormones (via the endocrine glands), as well as enzyme juices (via the exocrine glands) that help breakdown food during digestion.

The organ distributes their products to the rest of the gastrointestinal tract via ducts. Symptoms of pancreatic cancer depend on which gland or duct is affected. Although cancer can develop in the glandular cells of the pancreas, the ducts tend to be the most susceptible area.
