Causes of Pancreatic Cancer includes genetic mutation and familial history of pancreatic cancer.

No exact cause is being found for the pancreatic cancer but it is believed that people who are above 65 or smokers have a higher chance of getting pancreatic cancer. This type of cancer is also seen in the people with a family history of pancreatic cancer or any other types of cancer. Genes mutation and continuous exposure to hazardous chemicals are also responsible for causing pancreatic cancer.
