Ben Feigin’s cause of death
Ben Feigin died of pancreatic cancer, although the extent of his illness remains unknown. Meanwhile, it is unknown if Ben died in a hospital or at home, and additional details are anticipated. Pancreatic cancer originates in pancreatic tissues. The pancreas produces digestive enzymes as well as hormones that help with blood sugar control. Pancreatic cancer originates in the cells lining the ducts that convey pancreatic digesting enzymes. The condition is often diagnosed early and is readily treated. Back discomfort, weight loss, skin yellowing and whites in the eyes, light-colored feces, dark-colored urine, itchy skin, blood clots, and weariness are all symptoms. However, if cancer spreads to other organs, it causes symptoms. Depending on the amount of cancer’s spread, it may be treated with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation treatment, or a combination of these.
