Who Discovered Pancreatic Cancer?

We say some diseases are "discovered" by individuals because they have recognised a combination of symptoms, physical signs and an outcome or prognosis as related (ie they "put it all together") where no one has clicked to this before.

This has mainly happened for rare diseases (common ones have been understood for a long time by many people) and in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries (because of increasing knowledge of medicine and increasing population -- more people have the rare disease).

Pancreatic cancer often causes jaundice. This is yellow skin and is an obvious sign. Ancient physicians in Egypt, Greece, China, etc. would have recognised this and linked it with a poor outcome. However, there is no record that they understood it was due to a tumour deep inside the abdomen, specifically the pancreas. So they had a partial grasp of the disease.

It was only when examining dead bodies was acceptable culturally did people find these tumours. One of the early "pathologists", but not necessarily the first, to find these tumours was Giovanni Battista Morgagni (1682-1771).

So, in answer to your question, no single person discovered pancreatic cancer.

Forget anything you have ever been told about Diabetes. And get this - it has nothing to do with insulin, exercise, diet or anything else you've heard in the past. It's all based on latest breakthrough research that Big Pharma is going Stir Crazy to hide from you. Visit here : https://tinyurl.im/aH1tg to find out what all the fuss is about.
