Janumet Pancreatic Cancer Treatment

A team of doctors will assess potential Janumet pancreatic cancer treatment options based on many variables, including:

  • Whether the cancer can be removed surgically
  • How far the cancer has progressed (stage of the cancer)
  • If the cancer has spread outside the pancreas (metastasized)
  • Other health problems that may complicate treatment
  • If the cancer is newly diagnosed or recurrent after previous treatment

When pancreatic cancer is diagnosed in Stage 0, Stage I, or Stage II, there is a possibility that it can be cured with aggressive surgery, drug treatment, and chemotherapy. During the earliest stages, pancreatic cancer is located entirely within the pancreas, or has only spread to nearby tissues.

Janumet pancreatic cancer treatment becomes far more complex in Stage III and Stage IV — after the cancer has metastasized. Treatment focuses on palliative care and maximizing the patient’s quality of life. Surgery and radiation therapy may reduce the size of the tumor, alleviate pain, and reduce complications.

Surgical Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer

Only one in five people who are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer are candidates for surgery. This is because most people are not diagnosed with pancreatic cancer until it has already spread and is no longer curable with surgery.

Janumet pancreatic cancer treatment may involve the following surgeries:

  • Whipple procedure: This is an option if the cancer is located in the “head” of the pancreas. The surgeon removes part of the pancreas, gallbladder, bile duct, and upper part of the small intestine (duodenum).
  • Pancreatectomy: Surgical removal of the entire pancreas. This treatment is used when the cancer grows in the “tail” section of the pancreas.
  • Surgery to cut off nerves in the abdomen to alleviate pain
  • Surgery to place a stent in the intestines and prevent an obstruction

Janumet Pancreatic Cancer Drug Treatments

Drug treatments for cancer vary depending on the stage, complications, and individual circumstances. Medications that might be used in Janumet pancreatic cancer treatments include:

  • Adrucil (Fluorouracil)
  • Efudex (Fluorouracil)
