    • Our Pancreas Mass Clinic is for people with all types of tumors in their pancreas: adenocarcinoma, neuroendocrine tumors or metastatic tumors (tumors that have spread from other parts of the body). We also see patients with tumors that are not in the pancreas, such as ampullary or duodenal cancers that require the same therapy as pancreas masses in the head of the pancreas. Our team of specialists are trained in the most advanced methods of treating these types of cancerous and non-cancerous tumors, minimizing complications and side effects.
