  1. Pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer : a population-based study.

    Article - En anglais


    Little is known about the etiology of cancer of the exocrine portion of the pancreas, which produces a variety of digestive enzymes.

    Smoking, certain dietary factors, and diabetes mellitus are considered to be risk factors, although the risk estimates are modest in most instances.

    A recent cohort study of patients with chronic pancreatitis indicated a ninefold to 16-fold increased risk for pancreatic cancer.


    Our purpose was to evaluate the relationship between various clinical types of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.
