Pancreatic Cancer and Colorectal Cancer

The pancreas is a gland of the digestive system. The causes of pancreatic cancer are unknown, but smokers are at greater risk. Likewise, the causes of colorectal cancer (including bowel cancer) are unknown but smoking and increasing age are risk factors. Pancreatic cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in Australia, with a five year survival rate of around 5%. The treatment and survival of patients with pancreatic cancer has not changed for over thirty years because there has been little research into the molecular and cell biology associated with it. A barium enema is an X-ray exam that can detect changes or abnormalities in the large intestine (colon). A sigmoidoscopy is a way to view the lower 20 inches of a person's sigmoid colon and rectum. It is one way to screen for colorectal cancer. Colonoscopy is a procedure that enables an examiner (usually a gastroenterologist) to evaluate the inside of the colon (large intestine or large bowel).
