How Long Is The Survival Rate Of Pancreatic Cancer?

Less than 20% survive the first year and less than 3% survive 5 years.

There are a few long term survivors whose cancer was found incidentally.

The only treatment that can possibly cure it is surgery.

Most often it kills the patient fairly quickly, less than a year.
Some people can work very aggressively and get rid of it.
I personally know someone who went through surgery, chemo, and radiation and is now healthier than ever.
That's rare, but possible.

Your father has already beat the possibilities. the common survival time for pancreatic maximum cancers is only 6 months. So, your dad is a truthfully a fighter and fortunate. i don't be attentive to roughly completely beating pancreatic maximum cancers. It happens yet very not often. The 5 365 days survival fee is approximately 2%. Given the 6 month regular survival time, every physique making it a million 365 days has plenty extra effectual survival fee, 2 years even bigger. additionally, looks like the form of maximum cancers won't be as aggressive as maximum pancreatic cancers. good success your father.
