Tobacco and the risk of pancreatic cancer: a review and meta-analysis.

​Cigarette smoking may be a major contributing factor to the development of pancreatic cancer.

The objective of this meta-analysis was to determine whether an association exists between smoking and pancreatic cancer risk. Data from 82 eligible scientific studies were analyzed for this study.

The research team discovered that cigarette smokers were much more liable to develop pancreatic cancer than non-smokers. Pancreatic cancer risk was found to increase by 75% in this study, and this elevated risk persisted for a minimum of 10 years in individuals who had quitted smoking. The findings of this meta-analysis further strengthen the body of evidence that implicate cigarette smoking as a risk factor for the development of pancreatic cancer.
