A Review on Pancreatic Cancer: Berberine Effect


Kidane Aaron*

An extremely sensitive and oblong-shaped gland in the left hypochondrium and upper epigastrium of the abdomen is the pancreas. It's right behind your stomach. Due to their location, pancreatic diseases have long been notoriously difficult to study and comprehend. Although this is not always the case, particularly in developing nations, highly specialized equipment and expertise are frequently required for a comprehensive examination and diagnosis of pancreatic conditions. Routine, cost-effective imaging methods like trans abdominal ultrasound are not very accurate in diagnosing pancreatic diseases because the pancreas is frequently obscured by abdominal gas or other organs and cannot be fully visualized. In addition, the symptoms of pancreatic diseases tend to be vague, multifactorial, and nonspecific, which only 9.7% of the time results in a incorrect diagnosis. Costly, invasive, and requiring access to specialists who are well-versed in pancreatic disease, the use of more efficient diagnostic methods further complicates the diagnosis.
