THE GLOBAL IMPACT OF PANCREATIC CANCER
What is the pancreas? The pancreas produces digestive enzymes that help the body use and store energy while also regulating blood sugar levels. When abnormal cells develop in the pancreas and grow out of control, they can create a tumor.
Early detection is vital. Patients diagnosed in time for surgery are more likely to live five years and beyond. Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest of all cancers – five-year survival rates are in the single digits.
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers.
Just 8% percent of those diagnosed survive five years.
On World Pancreatic Cancer Day, an estimated 985 people across the globe will die from pancreatic cancer.
Studies show that death rates for pancreatic cancer are increasing in the United States (in both sexes) and Europe (in women), while death rates are declining for most other cancers
