Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is often able to develop without causing any alarming or outwardly noticeable symptoms until the later stages. However, it is important to diagnose pancreatic cancer as early as possible so that proper treatment can be administered before the cancer spreads to other organs of the body. In order to catch pancreatic cancer at the earliest possible stages, the doctors at the Pancreatic Health Center have developed a series of tests that can rapidly diagnose pancreatic cancer. However, it is important that patients remain vigil when not at the hospital to so that they can identify the pancreas cancer symptoms when they arise.

Our Center

The Pancreatic Health Center is a part of the hospital at Webster College in Manhattan Beach, California. Students enrolled in the medical program at Webster College have the opportunity to work closely with many of the top doctors in the pancreatic cancer field. The Pancreatic Health Center is a fully functioning pancreatic cancer of the pancreas treatment center, as well as a diagnostic center and a recover center. Many of the patients who have undergone pancreatic cancer surgery stay at the center for several days to receive rehabilitation and training for life after pancreatic cancer surgery.

The Pancreatic Health Center was founded by a group of doctors who wanted to provide better education for students who were interested in working with pancreatic cancer patients. The center has evolved into one of the top pancreatic cancer treatment centers for pancreatic cancer symptoms, and remains an integral teaching tool to this day.

Research

Along with diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and treatment for pancreatic cancer, the Pancreatic Health Center is heavily involved in research projects, both as a research institute and as a funder of research for pancreatic cancer projects. One of the current issues facing pancreas cancer patients is the struggle to diagnose pancreatic cancer early enough to allow full treatment to be used. The pancreatic cancer researchers at the Pancreatic Health Center have focused their efforts on discovering new diagnostic techniques that may be employed in the future to help find and treat pancreatic cancer before it spreads into other organs of the body. Current methods are very reactionary, but our researchers are hoping to develop a simple blood test that may be able to find pancreatic cancer even in the very earliest stages. This blood test could be administered once every few years to located pancreatic cancer as early as possible.

Testimonials

“I was never as scared as the day I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I knew that few people survived, and losing my dad to pancreatic cancer a few years earlier didn’t help much either. The doctors at the Pancreatic Health Center were by my side for every minute of treatment, and I’m happy to say that I’m still going strong three years after diagnosis.”
Marth, San Francisco, CA

“I donate to the Pancreatic Health Center every year, not because I have pancreatic cancer, or because someone I know does, but because I believe in giving money to an organization that is committed to curing one of the deadliest cancers that we know of.”
Martin, Seattle, WA
