Were you looking for information about Pancreas? Pancreus is a common misspelling of pancreas.
The pancreas is a type of gland located between the stomach and the spine, and is surrounded by the liver, the intestine, and other organs. This gland is important for making insulin, various hormones, and pancreatic juices. The hormones are important for helping the body store and use energy that comes from food. The pancreatic juices contain important enzymes that help digest food in the small intestine.
