Pancreatic cancer. Light micrograph of a section from a malignant pancreatic adenocarcinoma. This is a cancerous tumour in the ducts (white) of the pancreas that carry digestive juices to the small intestine. Treatment is by chemotherapy and surgical removal of the tumour. Prognosis is poor, as symptoms rarely occur until the cancer is advanced, by which point it may have metastasised (spread) to other organs.
