Exocrine pancreatic cancer although there are several different types of pancreatic cancer, 95% of cases are due to pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Other less common exocrine pancreatic cancers include: adenosquamous carcinoma squamous cell carcinoma giant cell carcinoma acinar cell carcinoma small cell carcinoma the exocrine pancreas makes up 95% of the pancreas, so it's not surprising that most pancreatic cancers arise here. Endocrine pancreatic cancer other cells of the pancreas make hormones that are released directly into the bloodstream (endocrine system). Cancerous tumors arising from these cells are called pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors or islet cell tumors. Endocrine pancreatic cancers are uncommon, and are named according to the type of hormone produced: insulinomas (from an insulin-producing cell) glucagonomas (from a glucagon-producing cell) somatostatinomas (from a somatostatin-making cell) gastrinomas (from a gastrin-producing cell) vipomas (from vasoactive intestinal peptide-making cell) some pancreatic islet cell tumors do not secrete hormones and are known as non-secreting islet tumors of the pancreas. Causes of pancreatic cancer pancreatic cancer occurs when cells in the pancreas grow, divide, and spread uncontrollably, forming a malignant tumor. The exact cause of pancreatic cancer is unknown.
