Pancreatic Cancer Treatment

Pancreatic cancer occurs when the cells in the pancreatic tissue undergo mutation or changes and begin to multiply out of control, leading to the formation of cancerous tumors. In a healthy body, cell replication is a controlled process, and cells typically multiply to replace the dying cells. However, in cases of pancreatic cancer, the cells multiply beyond the usual pattern, resulting in an extra mass of cells that can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).

It is still unclear what causes these changes to occur, but some risk factors, as mentioned above, may increase an individual’s likelihood of developing pancreatic cancer. Symptoms can be difficult to detect in the early stages of the disease, which is why early detection and treatment are critical.

At Sri Ramakrishna Specialty Hospital Trichy, our team, led by Dr. Vijay Anand, is dedicated to providing comprehensive care and treatment for patients with pancreatic cancer. Our state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge technology enable us to diagnose and treat pancreatic cancer with the utmost precision and accuracy.


Pancreatic cancer is a serious disease that can be difficult to detect in its early stages. Here are some common signs and risk factors associated with pancreatic cancer:

  • Yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes (jaundice)
  • Upper and middle abdominal pain
  • Back pain
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Dark colored urine
  • Light-colored stools

It is important to note that having one or more of these risk factors does not necessarily mean that an individual will develop pancreatic cancer. However, if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or have concerns about your risk, it is important to speak with your doctor. We at Sri Ramakrishna Specialty Hospital, Trichy help you to determine your risk and recommend any necessary screening or preventative measures.

Early diagnosis is essential for the successful treatment of pancreatic cancer. At Sri Ramakrishna Specialty Hospital Trichy, we offer comprehensive diagnostic services to accurately detect and evaluate pancreatic cancer.

During the diagnostic process, our expert medical team led by Dr. Vijay Anand, will review the patient’s symptoms and medical history. They may also recommend one or more of the following tests:

Diagnosis for Pancreatic Cancer

  • CT or MRI scans: These tests produce detailed images of the pancreas, enabling our team to evaluate any abnormal growths or masses.
  • Endoscopic ultrasound: This procedure involves inserting a thin, flexible tube with a camera down into the stomach to obtain detailed images of the pancreas.
  • Biopsy: A tissue sample of the pancreas is extracted for laboratory analysis under a microscope, allowing our team to confirm the presence of cancer cells.
  • Blood tests: Blood tests can help detect the presence of tumor marker CA 19-9, which can indicate pancreatic cancer.

Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer

At Sri Ramakrishna Specialty Hospital Trichy, we understand that treating pancreatic cancer requires a comprehensive approach that is tailored to the patient’s unique condition. Our team of medical experts led by Dr. Vijay Anand, work to develop individualized treatment plans that aim to kill cancerous cells and prevent their spread.

The following are some of the treatment options that we use, depending on the stage of the cancer:

  • Surgery: In this procedure, some parts of the pancreas are removed to treat cancer. Surgery may not always be recommended for advanced-stage pancreatic cancer since it may not get rid of cancer that has spread to other places.
  • Radiation therapy: This involves using X-rays and high-energy beams to kill cancer cells.
  • Chemotherapy: Doctors use medication to kill cancer cells and stop their further development.
  • Targeted therapy: Medication and antibodies are used to specifically target cancer cells, avoiding damage to healthy cells that might be caused by chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
  • Immunotherapy: In this treatment option, various methods are used to trigger the patient’s immune system to target cancer.

At Sri Ramakrishna Specialty Hospital Trichy, we use the latest technology and techniques to ensure the best possible outcome for our patients.
