Pancreas, artwork. The pancreas (pink) is an organ in the upper abdomen behind and below the stomach which has been removed here. The head of pancreas (left) is the portion of the pancreas that fits within the curve of the duodenum into which it secretes enzymes to aid in digestion. The pancreas is an endocrine gland and also produces hormones such as insulin. It is shown here from the front with surrounding organs and the rib-cage.
