Let’s understand
the anatomy first

The pancreas is a small gland located behind the stomach and attached to the small intestine. It is an essential organ in the human body. It helps regulate blood sugars and enzymes that help the body digest food. It has both an exocrine (system to lubricate and protect the organs) and an endocrine (hormone secretion) function.

The pancreas has three main parts:

  • The head of the pancreas – the large, rounded section next to the first part of the small bowel.
  • The body of the pancreas – the middle portion
  • The tail of the pancreas – the narrow part on the left side of the body
