Pancreatic Cancer

Asked for Male, 68 years

My father in law has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last stage and he is a diabetic. It is been 3 months that we got to know about his disease. Now, he is diagnosed with hernia which needs to be operated as soon as possible. I want to know is there any connection between these two pancreatic cancer and hernia?

Dear Patient,

No there isn't. A hernia is a very common condition that occurs when the overlying muscle and fascia tear and the inner structures pop out of it. It is a benign condition that can be repaired surgically.
