Pancreatic cancer is scary because early signs and symptoms like stomach pain, weight loss, and nausea are somewhat common and explained away, but early detection is key.

Surgery is the best option for a cure for pancreatic cancer that is caught early—and is often not an option for advanced-stage disease. The UM St. Joseph Liver and Pancreas Center and in the Cancer Institute, offers a range of options to treat pancreatic cancer at every stage.

Treatment depends on the cancer stage and the patient’s overall health, and can include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. The UM St. Joseph Liver and Pancreas Center features a team of expert specialists who work together to treat the whole patient.

The center is proud to offer world-class pancreatic cancer treatment in a community-based setting—care that puts patients first and gives them access to expert providers; advanced, compassionate, individualized care; and integrative/wellness therapies that address the needs of the body, mind and spirit.
