What is Pancreatic Cancer?

Pancreatic cancer involves cells in the pancreas — a vital gland behind the stomach — that multiply out of control. It’s known for its aggressive nature and poor prognosis, primarily because it’s often diagnosed at a late stage when treatment is more challenging. The pancreas plays an important role in digestion and regulating blood sugar, and cancer there can severely impact these functions. Pancreatic cancer is often life-threatening.

Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer

According to the Cleveland Clinic, symptoms of pancreatic cancer may include:

  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin)
  • Dark urine
  • Light-colored stool
  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Middle back pain
  • Fatigue
  • Itchy skin
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Gas or bloating
  • Lack of appetite
  • Blood clots
  • Weight loss
  • New-onset diabetes

IMPORTANT: If you’ve experienced any of the symptoms above, contact your medical provider immediately. Pancreatic cancer can be life-threatening, and early detection is key to improving treatment’s effectiveness.

Do Weight Loss and Diabetes Drugs Cause Pancreatic Cancer?

Research is ongoing, and no definitive causal relationship has been established, but evidence indicates that certain active ingredients in weight loss and diabetes drugs may increase the risk of pancreatic cancer.

Recent studies have started to explore the potential association between GLP-1 receptor agonists and an increased risk of pancreatic cancer. While these investigations are still in their early stages, the concerns stem from the role of these drugs in stimulating the pancreas. The hypothesis is that prolonged stimulation could potentially lead to abnormal cell growth and, eventually, cancer. It’s important to note that current research does not conclusively establish a direct causative link but suggests a correlation that requires further investigation.

Pancreatic Cancer Lawsuits Against Diabetes & Weight Loss Drug Manufacturers

This potential pancreatic cancer link has led to lawsuits against the manufacturers of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy. Patients who developed pancreatic cancer after using these medications have started filing lawsuits, alleging that the manufacturers failed to provide adequate warnings about the risks associated with these drugs. These lawsuits claim negligence in various forms, including insufficient safety studies, inadequate warnings to the public and medical community, and aggressive marketing practices overshadowing the potential risks.

Claims against Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro, and other drug makers are gaining momentum. This is partly due to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s recently increased scrutiny. In September 2023, the FDA required several manufacturers to add warning labels to certain weight loss and diabetes drugs due to potential gastrointestinal disease risks.

Do You Have a Claim?

You may have a claim for a weight loss and diabetes drug lawsuit if you meet the following criteria:
