Hello, my name is Gregory. When I was a young lad, I had to enter the health care world in an unexpected way. I developed a serious disease out of the blue that took doctors by surprise. I went through so many different testing procedures before my doctors could diagnose the rare disease. Everyone around me reeled as they tried to understand the purpose and process of the diagnostic tests. I hope to help others understand these important tests better through this website. Please come by often to learn all you need to know about medical diagnostics and working closely with health care professionals.

And for pancreatic cancer patients who do not have surgery, the one-year survival rate for this type of cancer is only 29%. Unfortunately, surgery is not always possible, often because the tumor is located too close to important structures like veins and nerves. However, a new treatment is making these surgeries more possible for more patients.
