Mucinous cystadenocarcinoma commonly affects individuals older than forty years of age. Females are more commonly affected with mucinous cystadenoma of pancreas than males.

Mucinous cystadenoma of pancreas

  • Mostly in perimenopausal women in late 40s to early 50s.[7]
  • More common in females than males.
