Doctor Answers (2) on Pancreatic cancer
Hi....., In metastatic i.e distant spread pancreatic cancer, chemotherapy is recommended for individuals....It has been proven to both extend the lives of patients with pancreatic cancer and to improve their quality of life. ...... Chemotherapy travels through the bloodstream and goes anywhere the blood flows and, as such, treats most of the body. It can attack a cancer that has spread through the body wherever it is found..... Chemotherapy options for patients with pancreatic cancer vary from treatment with a single chemotherapy agent to treatment with as many as three chemotherapies given together.....Consult oncologist...
