What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What is Pancreatic Acinar Cell Carcinoma?

Thriving — not just surviving — begins with knowing vital information about your disease and the holistic cancer treatment options available to you.

Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) of the pancreas is a rare neoplasm that accounts for 1 to 2 percent of pancreatic cancer cases in adults. A 2015 study described pancreatic ACCs as well-circumscribed and partially encapsulated tumors that can arise in any part of the pancreas. They are generally large; averaging a diameter of 8 to 10 centimeters. When cut for further lab analysis, the surface of an ACC tumor appears homogeneous pink to tan, fleshy, and friable inconsistency. Hemorrhage, necrosis, and cystic changes were also reported.

What are the Signs of Pancreatic ACC?

Our cancer care team here at New Hope Medical Center is dedicated to reversing the symptoms of pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma, which may include:

  • A lump or mass in the abdomen
  • Abdominal pain or discomfort
  • Unexplainable weight loss
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Yellowing of the whites of the eyes and the skin (jaundice)
  • Increased blood levels of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), a tumor marker
  • Presence of carbohydrate antigen 19-9, which pancreatic cancer cells release
  • Subcutaneous nodules or deep-seated lesions in the skin

What Caused Your Cancer?

The causes of acinar cell carcinoma in the pancreas is not understood. Some published studies from 2012 to 2014 have reported that pancreatic ACC may be associated with certain genetic disorders, including:

  • Lynch syndrome
  • Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP)

However, scientists and doctors are conducting continual investigative studies to determine whether hereditary conditions are actual risk factors for acinar cell carcinoma.

How Do Doctors Diagnose Pancreatic Acinar Cell Carcinoma?

The following diagnostic procedures play an important role in evaluating a suspicious-looking mass, determining its size and reach, and producing accurate findings that may improve a pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma prognosis:

  • Medical history and physical exam Cancer blood tests to detect tumor markers
  • Imaging studies to locate distant metastasis:
    • Abdominal ultrasounds
    • Computed tomography (CT) scans
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans
    • Positron emission tomography (PET) scans
    • X-rays of the chest area
  • Biopsy or sample tissue removal for lab testing

If you received a pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma diagnosis, the next critical step is to plan your cancer treatment.
