The following statistics are reflected per the National Institute of Health (NIH). The statistics measure and compare 5-year survival rates, annual incidence rates, and annual death rates to other types of cancers.

Few people realize the average 5-year survival rate of pancreatic cancer is the worst of all cancers at 9.3%. That percentage is astoundingly low compared to other more well-known types of cancer. Pancreas cancer has now passed breast cancer to become the third leading cause of annual cancer deaths in the USA.
