New research published in the journal Nature
reveals that pancreatic cancer takes 20
years to grow to the point where it is diagnosed
by conventional medical doctors. This was
determined by sequencing the DNA of cancer
tumor cells from deceased patients. Because
cancer mutations occur in growing tumors
at a known rate, scientists were able to
map the timing of the development of full-blown
pancreatic cancer tumors.
the scientists at Johns Hopkins University
School of Medicine and the Howard Hughes
Medical Institute found (and here's why
this matters in a huge way to people interested
in healthy living):
It takes 11.7 years for one mutation in
a pancreas cell to grow into a "mature"
pancreatic tumor (which might show up on
a medical scan).
It takes another 6.8 years for the pancreatic
tumor to spread and cause tumors to appear
in other organs of the body.
it takes about 20 years for a person
to grow a cancer tumor and see it spread
to the point where their doctor will diagnose
them with pancreatic cancer.
words, by the time doctors diagnose
you with cancer, you've already been growing
it for two decades.
