The pancreas is a long, flat gland that located in the abdomen behind the stomach. It produces -several important enzymes that are released into the small intestine to help with digestion. Pancreas also contains clusters of cells called islets. The cells in these islets produce hormones such as insulin and glucagon, which help control the level of glucose (a type of sugar) in the blood.
