Pancreatic Cancer Toronto


According to the Canadian Cancer Society http://www.cancer.ca/en/cancer-information/cancer-type/pancreatic/statistics/?region=on   in 2017 the estimated number of newly diagnosed cases of cancer pancreas in Canada was 5500, and almost 4,800 died from pancreatic cancer the same year.

One in every 74 men in Canada will develop pancreatic cancer, and one in 72 will die from it. 


How Can Doctors Treat Cancer Pancreas?

Cancer Pancreas can be treated surgically by an operation called ( Total Pancreatectomy) which means the removal of the whole pancreas. Sometimes, other organs should be removed as well if they are very close to or attached to the Pancreas such as the Duodenum and the Spleen. Surgery is not the only means of treatment for Cancer Pancreas, chemotherapy can be given in an advanced disease or when the regional lymph nodes are involved. Radiation  Therapy can be given for palliation of symptoms or after surgery. Many Cancer Treatment Centres exist in Ontario for the Treatment of Cancer Pancreas, In Toronto there is the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and Sunnybrook Cancer Centre and in Hamilton, there is the Jurvinski Cancer Centre.

Natural ways of support for Cancer Pancreas

Not only Chemotherapy and Radiation Can help patients with Cancer Pancreas, but also, the use of Natural Interventions proved effective and very useful in Cancer Pancreas. The administration of the High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C in Cancer Pancreas patients has positive effects as proved in many studies, so Drisko et al (2018) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5882293/ have published a case report study in the Anti-Cancer Drug Journal this year, about a Complete Response of Cancer Pancreas patient after administering High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C. Moreover, Gonzalez et al (2016) https://www.oatext.com/High-dose-intravenous-vitamin-c-and-metastatic-pancreatic-cancer-Two-cases.php#Article  published another article about the use of the High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C in two patients with advanced stage Cancer Pancreas who lived more than two years after receiving High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C.


The use of the High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C as a natural means of support for the Cancer Pancreas is an effective modality for supporting Disease Control in many patients.
