As the fourth leading cause of cancer death in men and women in the USA, prognosis of pancreatic cancer has been tough. Because conditions of pancreatic cancer differ from patient to patient, the survival duration is different and whether the patient can have surgery is to be decided according to the actural conditions.
In average, patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer can survive between 3 and 12 months. Because by the time of the diagnosis the pancreatic cancer has already been quite advanced, the survival duration is fairly alarming.
Surgery is by now the only recognized cure of pancreatic cancer. However, only a small number of pancreatic cancer patients can have surgery effective for their recovery.
