    Where can I get reliable data from? I need to work on Chronic Pancreatitis disorder and stomach cancer.

    What I need to know?
    - what is the disorder
    - which organ/s are affected
    - what functions of the organs affected, how and why
    - what are some common symptoms of the disorder
    - what causes the symptoms
    - what are the consequences if the condition is left untreated
    3. Answer the following part to conclude your write-up.

    What else do I need to know?
    - Is a surgery to remove the affected organ/s possible?
    - How will removing part or whole of the organ affect the patient's diet and lifestyle.

    I'm a 3rd year medical student at UEA doing my gastroenterology (and most other organs in the abdomen) rotation. Just to clarify that you want 'facts' rather than data like numerical figures?

    Some good online sources are NHS, patient.info, BMJ Best Practice, almostadoctor, macmillan for cancers, emedicine and believe it or not wikipedia can be quite good sometimes!

    Just for an additional point; 'what causes the symptoms' is known as pathophysiology meaning what goes wrong in normal physiology of the body to cause the problems and 'consequences of leaving untreated' is known as prognosis

    Any other questions, feel free to ask!
