Do you have

pancreatitis?

Pancreatic cancer is a leading cause of cancer death and unfortunately, treatment for the disease is usually not effective. That is why preventing pancreatic cancer before it occurs, especially among those who are at increased risk for developing it, is a very important goal.  People who develop pancreatitis more than once are at risk for chronic (or ongoing) pancreatitis, which is a strong risk factor for pancreatic cancer.
