Diabetes After 50 May Be Sign of Pancreatic Cancer

A new study suggests that diabetes may be an early sign of pancreatic cancer.
Conducted at USC's Keck School of Medicine, the study found a correlation between the onset of diabetes after the age of 50, and early pancreatic cancer.
According to CNN, the study included nearly 50,000 participants over a 20-year-period.
But only 16,000 participants developed diabetes over those two decades, and only 400 developed pancreatic cancer.
Although diabetes is no sure sign of pancreatic cancer, the study's lead author said that diabetes patients are twice as likely to develop pancreatic cancer.
Wendy Setiawan added that their study suggests a need to better identify early pancreatic cancer patients.
