Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a fast-growing cancer that has become the fourth leading cause of cancer death.

If you suspect you have pancreatic cancer, or if you’ve already received a diagnosis, UC San Diego Health is ready to care for you. We see more pancreatic cancer patients than any other medical center in the region, and our surgeons perform the highest volume of the complex procedures for this kind of cancer. Our decades of clinical expertise, combined with scientific advances from our research team, mean that we offer medical care not available anywhere else in the region.
