In all types of humans cell in the pancreas (pancreatic) different types of cancer can occur. An adenocarcinoma is most common for a tumor in the discharge tubes. This tumor usually occurs in the head of the pancreas and is then called pancreatic cancer. Also in other tissues around the pancreas tumors may arise, such as in the papilla of Vater, the duodenum or the lower part of the main bile duct.
