n medicine, pancreatic cancer is a malignant neoplasm of the pancreas. In typical usage, the term "pancreatic cancer" refers specifically to the significantly most common type of cancer, adenocarcinoma (and some variants thereof), that arises within the exocrine component of the pancreas, although the term can also reasonably be used to encompass less common types of cancer that also originate within the pancreas, and is quite frequently inclusive of the other exocrine cancers. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth most common cause of cancer death, both in the US and internationally.
