Pancreas is made up of mainly 2 types of cells – the exocrine cells (99%) and the endocrine cells (1%). The main functions of the pancreas include secretion of digestive juice and several hormones (glucagon, insulin, somatostatin, and pancreatic polypeptide).
Pancreatic adenocarcinoma (affecting exocrine cells) is the most common (95% of the cases) type of pancreatic cancer.
