Causes of Pancreatic Cancer: Changes in DNA Caused By Drugs May Cause Pancreatic Cancer by Diabetic Pancreatic Cancer Lawyer

Causes of Pancreatic Cancer: Diabetics and Health Care Providers Prescribing Diabetes Drugs Should Be Aware That Some Diabetes Medications Can Cause An Increased Risk of Pancreatic Cancer by Diabetic Pancreatic Cancer Lawyer Jason S. Coomer

Though scientists still do not know the exact cause of all cases of pancreatic cancer, they have found several risk factors that can make a person more likely to get this disease. Recent research has that several diabetes drugs may cause an increased risk of pancreatic cancer.  These diabetes drugs include Januvia, Janument, Victoza, Byetta, Onglyza, Tradjenta, Bydureon, Oseni, and other diabetes drugs.  If you have been taking a diabetes drug and have been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer or you have lost a loved one that was taking a diabetes drug and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, please report the adverse action to the prescribing medical doctor and FDA as soon as possible.  

For persons that have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer or families that have a loved one that has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and was taking diabetic drugs, please feel free to send an e-mail message to Pancreatic Cancer Lawyer Jason Coomer.

Causes of Pancreatic Cancer: Understanding DNA May Be The Key to Determining Causes of Cancer

Researchers have made great progress in understanding how certain changes in DNA can cause normal cells to become cancerous. DNA is the chemical in each cell that carries our genes — the instructions for how our cells function. We look like our parents because they are the source of our DNA. But DNA affects more than the way we look. Some genes contain instructions for controlling when our cells grow and divide. Certain genes that promote cell division are called oncogenes. Others that slow down cell division or cause cells to die at the right time are called tumor suppressor genes. Cancers can be caused by DNA mutations (defects) that turn on oncogenes or turn off tumor suppressor genes.

Several cancer family syndromes have been found in which inherited DNA mutations cause a very high risk of developing certain cancers. In some of these, there is an increased risk of getting pancreatic cancer. Researchers have characterized many of these DNA changes in the past few years. Most often, DNA mutations of oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes related to cancers of the pancreas occur after you are born, rather than having been inherited. These acquired mutations may result from cancer-causing drugs or chemicals in our environment.
