Background/AimSmoking is a recognized risk factor for pancreatic cancer. The aim of this study was to perform a meta-analysis to provide a robust estimate of the strength of the association between smoking and pancreatic cancer, to determine the risk of pipe and cigar smoking, and to estimate the duration of an elevated risk after smoking cessation.MethodsWe performed a meta-analysis of 82 published studies containing epidemiologic information about smoking and pancreatic cancer.

Strong excess risk of pancreatic cancer for low frequency and duration of cigarette smoking: A comprehensive review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
The present meta-analysis indicates that pancreatic cancer risk sharply increases with a low number of cigarettes or after a few years of smoking and that it rapidly decreases a few Years after cessation, although it takes almost 20 years to reach that of never smokers.
Impact of Smoking on the Risk of Pancreatitis: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The evidence suggests a positive association of cigarette smoking with the development of pancreatitis, and it is possible that smoking cessation may be a useful strategy for the management of Pancitis.
Smoking and Pancreatic Cancer Incidence: A Pooled Analysis of 10 Population-Based Cohort Studies in Japan
TLDR
This study supports the well-known association between smoking and pancreatic cancer and indicates potential sex differences in a Japanese population, with a particular focus on evaluating sex differences.
Risk factors for pancreatic cancer: a summary review of meta-analytical studies.
TLDR
About two-thirds of the major risk factors associated with PC are potentially modifiable, affording a unique opportunity for preventing one of the authors' deadliest cancers.
Cigarette smoking and pancreatic cancer: a pooled analysis from the pancreatic cancer cohort consortium.
TLDR
Estimates of excess odds ratio per pack-year declined with increasing intensity, suggesting greater risk for total exposure delivered at lower intensity for longer duration than for higher intensity for shorter duration.
Environmental tobacco smoke and the risk of pancreatic cancer among non-smokers: a meta-analysis
TLDR
This meta-analysis does not provide evidence for an association between exposure to ETS and risk of pancreatic cancer and uses the random-effects model to pool summary relative risks.
Tea drinking and risk of pancreatic cancer
Background Epidemiologic studies have reported inconsistent results regarding tea consumption and the risk of pancreatic cancer. This study aimed to investigate whether tea consumption is related to
Smoking and other risk factors for pancreatic cancer: a cohort study in men in Lithuania.
TLDR
No convincing evidence was found that alcohol consumption, body mass index or serum cholesterol level were associated with pancreatic cancer risk, although the assessment was limited by the lack of statistical power.
Tobacco smoking and the risk of pancreatitis: A systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective studies.
TLDR
It is suggested that tobacco smoking increases the risk of acute and chronic pancreatitis and acute and Chronic pancreatitis combined and that there is a dose-response relationship between increasing number of cigarettes and pack-years and pancreatitis risk.
Smoking as a Cofactor for Causation of Chronic Pancreatitis: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
A meta-analysis with random-effects models to estimate pooled relative risks of chronic pancreatitis for current, former, and ever smokers, in comparison to never smokers found tobacco smoking may enhance the risk of developing Chronic pancreatitis.

A prospective study of cigarette smoking and the risk of pancreatic cancer.
TLDR
Cigarette smoking is associated with an increased risk of pancreatic cancer and the rapid reduction in risk associated with quitting suggests that smoking cessation could eliminate 25% of the 27,000 deaths from pancreaticcancer occurring annually in the United States.
Cigarette smoking, elevated fasting serum glucose, and risk of pancreatic cancer in Korean men
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cigarette smoking and elevated fasting serum glucose are independently associated with an increased risk of pancreatic cancer in a large cohort of Korean males.
Establishment of risk model for pancreatic cancer in Chinese Han population.
TLDR
A risk model for pancreatic cancer in Chinese Han population has been established with an 88.9% sensitivity and a 97.6% specificity.
A prospective study of lifestyle factors and the risk of pancreatic cancer in Nord-Trøndelag, Norway
TLDR
The risk of former smokers may approach the risk of never smokers within a few years subsequent to quitting, confirming the findings of previous studies that indicate a causal role of cigarette smoking in pancreatic cancer.
Exocrine Pancreatic Cancer, Cigarette Smoking, and Diabetes Mellitus: A Case-Control Study in Northern Italy
TLDR
The role of cigarette smoking and diabetes mellitus as risk factors for exocrine pancreatic cancer (PC) was investigated in a hospital based case-control study and the type of treatment needed to control the disease may discriminate between the diabetes that represents a consequence of cancer from the Diabetes that could represent an etiological co-factor.
A prospective cohort study of cigarette smoking and pancreatic cancer in Japan
TLDR
Cigarette smoking was associated with an increased risk of death from pancreatic cancer and a significantly decreasing trend in risk with increasing years after smoking cessation was observed.
Predictors of pancreatic cancer mortality among a large cohort of United States adults
TLDR
It is confirmed that cigarette smoking is an important predictor of pancreatic cancer mortality, and several other factors that may contribute to increased risk are identified.

TLDR
It is suggested that smoking is a cause of pancreatic cancer in women and that the risks for female smokers are comparable to male smokers.
Lifestyle factors and pancreatic cancer risk: A cohort study from the Swedish Twin Registry
TLDR
The effects of diet, coffee, ethanol, tobacco use, BMI, physical activity and change in body weight on pancreatic cancer incidence in a cohort study of twins established in 1958 and followed by the Swedish Twin Registry is examined.
Cigarette smoking and pancreas cancer: A case‐control study of the search programme of the IARC
TLDR
It is illustrated that ceasing to smoke cigarettes can lead to reductions in the elevated risk of pancreas cancer produced by this habit and consistent with a causal role for cigarette smoking in the aetiology of pancreatic cancer.
