Pancreatic cancer is to become the
2nd leading cause of cancer death in the US by 2030.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools are becoming highly effective at detecting pancreatic cancer.

Early detection can save your life.

Are you at Risk?

If it is detected at an early stage, the 5-year survival rate is 42%.

Our Story

Vino Shan, Panc MD's Founder and CTO's elder brother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2018.

The family received a call from the hospital saying that his condition was "serious but nothing to worry about". Upon arrival at the hospital, they learned that he had passed away. It was detected at a very late stage and in 18 days from diagnosis he passed away at the age of 61. In addition to processing the death of his elder brother, Vino had to break the news to his 85 year old mother of her son's passing.
Vino made it his mission to increase the 5-year survival rate using AI driven technology. Vino hopes that no other family will have to go through what he went through.

Keeping pancreas healthy

You can help reduce your risk of
pancreatic conditions by:

Maintaining a healthy weight. Regular exercise and avoiding weight gain can help prevent Type 2 diabetes and gallstones that can cause pancreatitis.
Eating a low-fat diet. High fat intake can lead to gallstones, which can cause pancreatitis. Being overweight is also a risk factor for pancreatic cancer.
Watching your alcohol intake. Drinking alcohol can increase your risk of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.
Quitting smoking. Using tobacco, along with cigar smoking and smokeless tobacco products, can raise your risk of pancreatic cancer and chronic pancreatitis.
Getting regular checkups. Seeing your healthcare provider for regular exams can help find early signs of conditions such as pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis.
