How to get Pancreatic Cancer

Aside from advanced age, smoking is the main risk factor for Pancreatic Cancer. It is also caused by damage to the DNA. This damage is often referred to as mutations. These mutations can be inherited from mom or dad, or they can be acquired as we age. These mutations happen when the cells in the pancreas begin to multiply and get bigger and puncture the soft tissue.

My point of view on pancreatic cancer

My view on pancreatic cancer is that i think even though it is a rare disease when people get this disease it hits them hard. By it hits them hard i mean that when people do get this disease it is extremely hard to get rid of because this disease almost always fatal which means there is no way to escape this disease. If you are a smoker i advise you to quit smoking while you still can. If you don't then it will just higher your risk of getting this disease.
