What Is Pancreatic Cancer?

Pancreatic cancer begins when abnormal cells in the pancreas grow and divide out of control and form a tumor.

How Many People Will Get Pancreatic Cancer?

More than 57,000 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2020. That is more than 158 people diagnosed every day.

Pancreatic cancer is the ninth most commonly diagnosed cancer in women and the 10th most commonly diagnosed in men in the U.S.

What Treatments Exist for Pancreatic Cancer?

Pancreatic cancer treatment depends on the stage of the disease and the patient’s general health. Patients may get standard (approved) treatments or take part in clinical trials.

Standard treatments are surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Clinical trials study new treatments. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network strongly recommends clinical trials at diagnosis and during every treatment decision.
