DESCRIPTION: The exact cause of pancreatic cancer is still largely unknown, but certain factors are known to increase risk, such as age, gender, race, cigarette smoking, diet, environment, and family history. But risk factors do not tell us everything. Having a risk factor, or even several risk factors, does not mean that you will get the disease. And some people who get the disease do not have any known risk factors. Learn about the latest essential facts of pancreatic cancer, as well as advances made within the last year.
