Abstract

Pancreatic cancer has traditionally been looked upon as a malignancy with a poor prognosis. Despite this nihilistic view, tremendous efforts have been made to understand the disease pathophysiology and management over the last couple of decades. This chapter provides a comprehensive, updated review of the epidemiology, presentations, risk factors, pathology, work-up and surgical management of patients with pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer, as a whole, remains a work in progress and considerable research continues to be performed in this disease aimed at improving not only survival, but quality of life, too.
