Position of the pancreas – image description

This diagram shows the position of the pancreas in relation to the other organs in the digestive system. The pancreas sits below and behind the stomach, which is on the left-hand side of the tummy. Curving around the pancreas is the first part of the small bowel. Also shown is the liver, which sits on the right-hand side of the tummy. Just above the pancreas and lower end of the stomach is the gall bladder. It is connected to the liver and small bowel by a tube called the bile duct.
