Ampullary Cancer

Ampullary Cancer is treated in the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center's Multidisciplinary Pancreatic Cancer Clinic.

Pancreatic Cancer

Most often, pancreatic cancer forms in the exocrine cells. When they do, the tumors do not secrete hormones and do not cause signs or symptoms. This makes it hard to detect this type of cancer early. In some cases, pancreatic cancer forms in the neuroendocrine pancreatic cells. When this happens, it causes pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (these are also known as islet cell tumors).
