What is the life expectancy for Stage 3 pancreatic cancer?
The life expectancy is not good. Only 4% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer will live for 5 years. The average person will only live for 3 to 6 months after diagnosis.

The life expectancy of small cell lung cancer stage four is 2-4months without treatment. With treatment, the life expectancyincreases to 6-12 months.
The limit in great cases meaning the person is in overall great health besides the cancer is around 5 years. However the survival rate is a little above 10%
no-one can answer that unless they know the surverity of the person's cancer. My grandad has just been diagnosed with lung cancer, they said that if it had been caught earlier… then they could have done something or pro-longd it but as he has had it for many years un-noticed by his doctor he has only 6 months left but that is only as it has spread to the liver and limp gland but caught ealier and there a chance of survival, you're best speaking to a doctor they could help more.
Yes, as muslims we believe that the life is in the hand of our creator, you can't say you will die that time, you will die when allah says .
There are five different stages of pancreatic cancer. In the first stage there is no spread, in the second the cancer grows locally, the third is local spread, the fourth is w…hen the cancer has spread even wider in nearby blood vessels and the fifth stage is, when the cancer has spread even to distant organs.
About 6 months. My dad was found in stage 4 of pancreatic cancer in Oct/Nov of 97 and died the first week of May 97.
Varies a lot from person to person. Can be as little as a few days/weeks to a year. Over one year is rare, but does happen. My Mother In Law was 78 when diagnosed with stage I…VB cancer and was given 2 to 4 weeks due to her overall age and health.
The pancreas is a vital organ that produces the hormone insulin and also produces digestive enzymes. . Insulin is used in the metabolic system of the body regulating the leve…l of blood sugar to those required for overall health--otherwise you would have diabetes. Insulin acts so that when blood sugar levels are high, it stores excess sugars as fat, and when blood sugar levels are low, it converts fat cells to sugar, making a person either gain or lose weight in the form of fat. The liver also acts in this process, and when too much sugar must be converted all at once, the triglyceride levels become elevated-this is not good. . The body's circulatory system as we age clogs up with various plaque type materials, and in doing so, the insulin receptors that react to the hormone's signals may not respond properly any more. This disease is known as type 2 or adult diabetes. Treatments for this type of disease involve attempting to unclog the insulin receptors so that they again begin to regulate blood sugar levels properly. Type 1 diabetes, however, is a disease where the pancreas itself is damaged by disease (possibly prior to birth or as a child) and fails to produce proper levels of insulin, resulting in a lack of control of blood sugar levels that could lead to coma. People who suffer from severe diabetes must give themselves insulin shots and frequently monitor their own blood sugar levels using a measurement device that examines a sample of blood, and then act accordingly--too little sugar, they must eat something--too much sugar and they will need a shot of insulin. Some rich people get their doctors to prescribe insulin so that they can lose weight / fat without having to go on a careful low fat / low carbohydrate / low sugar diet. This is supposedly what happened with Claus von BÃ¼low and his wife Sunny von BÃ¼low-where she was given an overdose of insulin by her husband, and died as a result. He was charged with her murder. . There are about 7 digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas. For cancer, Trypsin, a proteolytic enzyme, is key. . Trypsin helps a person to digest meat protein in their diet, and also fight cancer itself by helping to absorb tumors after the underlying cancer growth has been halted by the body's own immune system. The protein coat of a cancer cell is negatively charged and this permits these cells to avoid the negatively charged T-blood cells that attack and destroy viruses and abnormal / diseased cells. Trypsin specifically eats away the protein coat of cancer cells, exposing them to the destructive action of the T-blood cells to destroy cancer. Supplements of various enzymes can be purchased at a health food store or some pharmacies. Digestive enzymes will reduce the requirement for the body's own proteolytic enzymes, permitting them to attack cancer cells instead of digesting meat protein in the GI tract. If the enzymes are sufficiently bioavailable, then they may also act to digest the diseased cells' abnormal protein coat to help fight cancer. . When cancer attacks the pancreas, the cancer is usually very aggressive, and as it progresses, the pancreas becomes more diseased, permitting cancer to grow further and likely spread elsewhere. . The pancreas has a couple of ducts that lead and interconnect with other organs and the GI tract. Should the pancreatic cancer swell to cut off these ducts, the liver and the GI tract would be negatively affected. If the pancreatic duct to the liver is cut off, a jaundiced condition will quickly arise. This is an early sign of pancreatic cancer that will manifest itself first in the white parts of the eyes. The cancer will produce abdominal sensations of dull pain, and back pain of varying levels of intensity. Damage to the liver starts immediately when its pancreatic duct is blocked. . During Friday, Oct. 30 - "Ask Dr. Oz Special Event! Celebrity Edition," one of the latter segments included "Assistant of the Day, Alejandra (Jackson Heights, NY), helps Dr. Oz break down the silent but deadly signs of pancreatic cancer, that took the life of actor Patrick Swayze, and how to protect yourself." In this segment, Dr. Oz presented some excellent graphics and actual surgically removed diseased and non-diseased pancreas organs to illustrate the progression of the disease and its implications for other organs like the liver. . The over consumption of alcohol has been identified as one of the risk factors in pancreatic cancer. . Once cancer has been diagnosed, a strict vegetarian, low protein diet is usually recommended due to the obvious lack of proteolytic enzymes being unable to keep the cancerous tumors at bay. Often alternative health practitioners would advise such a patient to supplement their level of proteolytic enzymes by taking such capsules. . Cancer has numerous causes. . The underlying causes of cancer may include mutations, viral alterations to cellular DNA, toxic chemical alterations to cellular DNA, radiation poisoning that continuously causes cellular mutations, weakened immune system, weakened pancreatic / proteolytic enzyme production, fugal infection that promotes an adverse immune system response, and poor diet. . A surgical procedure will not remove the underlying cause of the disease. Allopathic medicine typically treats symptoms of disease (by cutting-surgery, burning-radiation, and poisons-patented pharmaceutical drugs) and not the underlying causes. . Most medical scientists believe that healthy people get cancerous cells occurring all of the time, but because the people are healthy, their systems quickly get rid of the trouble without developing any tumors at all. . Alternative medicine attempts to address the underlying causes of illness. Usually this is addressed by age old remedies empirically known to have worked for centuries. . Allopathic medicine that uses cutting, burning, and poisons became dominant in Western civilizations because of large money interests in the early 1900s setting up the medical system to promote the use of money-making drugs (patentable poisons) in the treatment of disease symptoms rather than the underlying causes. . Key players in this history were the Rockefeller family. The Rockefeller family initially found wealth by monopolizing the oil and gas energy sector in the 1800s and early 1900s. According to historians they were able to do this by buying out their competitors, arranging sweet deals to transport their goods, and having the lowest prices. But how could they manage this kind of operation from the start? Some non-mainstream historians believe that like J.P. Morgan, J.D. Rockefeller Sr. got huge unsecured loans from the Rothschild banking family of Europe, permitting Rockefeller to buy out his competition, and grease the wheels of anyone needing to be influenced, all while undercutting on prices. The Rockefeller interests spread to include "influencing government," media, banking, pharmaceutical drugs, higher education, the human genome project, and depopulation (population control). . The tycoons of the day found that their money went farther if it went untaxed, and so formed charitable tax-exempt foundations whose funding could go towards investments that would promote their existing monopolies. By providing investment money for certain projects, and de-funding that of others, they could virtually control the direction taken for various fields of endeavor including science and medicine. To further amplify this charitable influence, a consultant from the Pillsbury Corporation, Fred T. Gates, suggested that matching community funds be combined with foundation money, effectively doubling the monies invested, actively involving community public participation, while retaining the prestige of the name of the tycoon on the buildings and tycoon control of the resulting projects. The Flexner report of 1910 is credited with elevating the quality of medical education in America. It was sponsored by the AMA Inc., the Carnegie Foundation for Education, and the Rockefeller family. It recommended that non-allopathic medical schools be closed, the remaining medical schools merge with existing universities, and that they all be well funded by the tycoons and their tax exempt foundations. . Curricula in places of higher education were directed by board members specifically placed there by tycoons and their foundations. No one in these schools would learn anything not pre-approved by the tycoons to bolster their businesses. Any dissenting voices were crushed by critical peers who were in the sphere of influence of the tycoons. This specifically happened if the scientific researcher found a legitimate discovery such as a disease cause, or a successful means of treatment not involving patentable poisons or burning or cutting. The discoveries would be decried as quackery and nostrums. Doors of opportunity would be slammed shut to non-compliant researchers. The force of government was behind the monopolists permitting police to confiscate equipment politically and unscientifically declared 'unsafe,' practitioners threatened with de-licensing, and the researchers imprisoned if they persisted in making medical claims not sanctioned by the Rockefeller establishment. Non compliant M.D.s would become unlicensed, and publicly called quacks. . Accounts of researchers discovering cancer cures are widespread on the Internet. When these discoverers talk to cancer societies, government officials, and medical practitioners about their findings, they are persecuted for their claims, and begin to encounter legal troubles. . What substance is addictive, but less so than coffee, has a calming / sedative effect, makes you hungry, effectively treats glaucoma, epilepsy, has anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative and neuro-protective effects, and is an anti-cancer agent? (Hint: see PMID: 18833429, among others...) . Yet some hidden political hand has US federally-prohibited the natural substance starting in 1937 after the 1936 movie about "Reefer Madness!" The people behind the prohibition have enough political power and influence to have the same ban applied in Canada, the UK, and most EU countries. The ban is virtually baseless and acts only to protect the Rockefeller run cancer industry, and the Rockefeller run drug industry specifically. . Did that same substance have fake studies done that showed that brain damage resulted from its use? (see PMID: 4631500) Search >"rhesus monkeys" smoke cannabis OR marijuana OR THC OR Tetrahydrocannabinol asphyxiation< Video search >"the Rick Simpson Story"< . Lead is a known neurotoxin. Its stated purpose when it was added to gasoline long ago was that it was an antiknock agent, yet at the time many other safer antiknock agents were known to industry and government. Who could have enough influence to sway government to allow this lingering poison to be circulated commercially, and then released into air, water, and so on? Lead is also a carcinogen. Gasoline additives such as lead were also known to clog up high efficiency, high mileage carburetors invented by Charles N. Pogue in 1935 that were meant to make the chemical properties of the gas more uniform in terms of combustion properties like ignition temperature so that more of the power of the gas would be released more uniformly rather than have some of it still burning in the exhaust system, wasting its power. A study in the 1950s or 60s involving lead chelation (removal of heavy metal poisons from the blood and body) indicated that the incidence of cancer dropped significantly in the treated subjects as compared with the untreated citizenry of the same Swiss highway town of the study. . Recently alternative medicine remedies have been in the form of diet change, and the addition of certain vitamins, minerals, and supplements, combined with treatments with ozone, or peroxide, or hyperbaric oxygen, radio frequency plasma machine treatments, blood electrification, drinking of properly prepared colloidal silver water, pulsed electro-magnetic field treatments, tincture of iodine, or treatment with sodium bicarbonate. Detoxification is also key since a large proportion of malignacy is believed to be directly caused by toxins (possibly in the presence of pathogens). . The Budwig diet is one where flaxseed oil and cottage cheese are mixed and eaten. The biochemical effect is that this good type oil is made water soluble so that it can be absorbed into the cells of the body themselves to eliminate or displace other proteins that have poor cell oxygenation properties, and by doing so, oxygen energize existing cells, reverse the fermentation processes happening in cancer cells, possibly reverting these cells back to normal cells. . Bad oil is hydrogenated oil used in processing foods so that they do not spoil. If microorganisms cannot live on this oil (to cause spoilage), how can we humans live on it? Perhaps this stuff is so bad that it is a major part of what is killing us? . Gerson therapy is applied on a per patient basis by first evaluating the needs of the patient and customizing the diet for them. This diet involves juicing of a huge quantity of vegetables and fruits on an hourly basis and drinking it all, eating cooked vegetables, and taking coffee enemas. Coffee is a diuretic. As such the coffee when introduced into the colon will force the kidneys to express more urine than normal, ridding the body of more toxins than normal. The juicing machine endorsed by the followers of this diet is a grind then press unit that does not centrifugally spin the vegetable or fruit pulp. Supposedly this spinning action oxidizes a lot of the nutrients of the juice meant to go into the patient to improve their health. This grind and press juicing method can be crudely done by buying a meat grinder to slowly grind the vegetable or fruit, then using a multi-ton hydraulic jack to press / crush the ground vegetable and fruit pulp to release the juice. Typically the ground pulp is placed within a small fabric bag that when pressed by several tons force has the juices come out through the weaving of the fabric like a filtering effect to remove the liquid juice from the pulp. . Toxic chemicals from our environment find their way into our bodies. Some people genetically store the toxins in fat tissue, while other people do not. There are many toxins and various specific supplements (or chelation agents) to take to rid the body of many of them. The usual method to detoxify from these is to do various organ cleanses. Sometimes this involves doing a juice fast where all the body's needs must be met by drinking various fruit and vegetable juices for 1.5 to 2 weeks straight. . Some people are unable to digest their food properly because they either lack digestive enzymes or HCl stomach acid or pepsin that properly break down their food (vitamins and minerals) so that it can be nicely absorbed into the blood stream. There are all sorts of dietary enzyme, HCl, and pepsin supplements that can be found in health food stores and some pharmacies. . Chemotherapy involves taking a known cellular toxic substance and injecting it into the bloodstream of the patient. These toxins kill everything at varying rates. The goal is to kill fast growing cells like cancer tumor cells. Unfortunately hair cells are also fast growing and get killed off by chemotherapy. The human immune system is also fast growing so that it can change and adapt to newly introduced germs-it too is killed off by chemotherapy. By killing the immune system, and poisoning many other types of cells, chemotherapy risks doing too much damage to the entire body by making it defenseless to all sorts of other secondary infectious diseases, and also risks that the cancer spread unchecked by the immune system that would normally attempt to destroy diseased cells. . Some medical scientists believe that the body's own repair system intended to heal wounds, bruises, cuts, scrapes, and so on can sometimes go out of control where undifferentiated (stem) cells sent in to repair a damaged area do not stop reproducing because the electrical and chemical signals that regulate such processes have failed to halt this process. The theory goes that if the cancer cells are destroyed by laetrile / amygdalin, the tissues of the tumor can be reabsorbed into the system by proteolytic enzymes produced by the pancreas. This is very bad news if you have your pancreas removed by surgery. (See trophoblastic theory of cancer). . They account for the different types of cancer by the original type of tissue damage that was being repaired. . This theory is supported by people like G. Edward Griffin (and his many medical doctor colleagues) whose videos can be viewed on Google Videos. In his videos, he does not explain everything that is involved with the treatment method that he prefers (as he claims to do in his book on the topic), but most of the ideas seem to be nicely expressed and easy to understand. . Another world famous scientist, one Italian oncology doctor, has used the observations of Otto Warburg to treat certain forms of cancer as the body's reaction to a rapidly growing fungal infection--the body encapsulates the infection in tumor tissue to prevent its spread. (See Dr. Tullio Simoncini "Cancer as a fungus"). . By using simplistic anti-fungal substances such as sodium bicarbonate for internal cancers, and tincture of Iodine for external cancers, Dr. Simoncini has successfully treated many patients without adverse side effects. Simoncini reasons that a rapidly growing fugal colony is difficult for the body to combat, and so as a result, the body just encapsulates the infections within tumorous cell growths. By attacking and killing the underlying fungal infections, the need for the encapsulating tumor cells is gone, so the body just re-absorbs the tissues leaving just healthy tissue untouched. Videos on Google videos have Dr. Simoncini applying his treatment and showing before and after results. Often the treatments succeed in about one and a half weeks time. . If this scientist is correct, then the rapid tumor cells that are preventing the spread of the fugal infection will be killed by chemotherapy, and permit the spread of the fugal infection, kill the immune system, and kill your hair follicles-helping "the fungal cause of cancer" to spread to more places in the body. . Still other scientists in India, Russia, Germany, Cuba, Mexico, etc, have treated both the blood and the tumor areas with medical ozone, and performed blood irradiation with ultraviolet light to damage microbial blood-borne pathogens so that the body's auto immune system quickly develops resistance to these pathogens, thereby removing the cause of certain varieties of malignancy. Theoretically, this will work with some but perhaps not all cancers. Although there are Google videos about this ozone injection into tumors, there are no after follow-ups taken of the results days, weeks, or even months after the surgery- -so this remains in the speculative column for me. . The 1953 Fitzgerald congressional investigation into the practices of the AMA and FDA found that numerous legitimate cancer cures and treatments had been suppressed since shortly after the founding of the AMA, finding all the government and authority groups involved having performed conspiratorial and dishonest actions to suppress such treatments from the general public- -libelously calling these treatments quackery. . In 1990 Drs. Steven Kaali and William Lyman discovered that biocompatible electric current (a few millionths of an Ampere) could be used on blood, (and other bodily or synthetic fluids) to inactivate the HIV AIDS virus infectivity in-vitro (PMID: 15858720). . Using this information and examining the patents filed by Kaali, et al., Dr. Robert C. Beck, DSc. Physics, determined that such a biocompatible (small) electrical current could be induced to flow through the skin, into the blood, down one of the major arterial blood vessels in the forearm and back out through the skin without exsanguination (invasively removing quantities of blood from the body into a treatment machine, then putting it back into the body). Numerous AIDS patients who listened to Bob Beck spontaneously recovered within about one month. Testing that Beck had sponsored showed before and after Polymerase Chain Reaction Tests that saw the HIV viral loads go to such low levels that they were indistinguishable from zero on the measurement equipment used in the lab testing procedures. Beck publicized his treatment application, and some cancer patients began experimentally using it along with some herbal remedies recommended by Hulda Regehr Clark. After about a month's time these cancer patients reported back to Beck that they had undergone spontaneous remissions from the disease. Beck then incorporated this information in many of his lectures. Beck also found that there were shortcomings in his treatment when the AIDS virus could lay dormant within other body tissues and re-emerge later on. For this he developed a PEMF (pulsed electro magnetic field) device. The device would emit a very strong magnetic pulse from the sudden release of current from the stored electrical charge of a capacitor into an air core inductor of about 1 to 2.5 milli-Henrys. He also used low concentration colloidal silver in / using demineralized water to boost the immune system and rid the gastrointestinal tract of parasites and pathogenic microbes. (The use of demineralized water prevents the formation of silver salts that can cause a skin discoloration disease that turns a person's skin gray--argyria). Lastly, he found that patients were usually taking about a month to recover, and determined that by using ozonated drinking water that the inactivated pathogens could be more easily filtered out of the body via the kidneys, thereby cutting in half the recovery time using his treatment methods. He began to call his treatment method "The Beck Protocol." Medical doctors who saw this as economic competition to their business began to pooh-pooh the entire scheme without even experimentally giving it a try (the scientific method), and down played any scientific basis for the theory of its modality, calling it "quackery and nostrums." Beck knew that the FDA and AMA would likely try to entrap him and charge him with practicing medicine without a license, but Beck was careful to label this as medical experimentation and made no recommendations that any one particular sick person do any of these treatments without first consulting with their own medical professional. . The Beck Protocol involves killing various pathogenic causes of diseases including HIV AIDS, fugal infections, other blood borne viruses, mycoplasmas, and bacteria. In doing so, alternative health practitioners believe that this permits the immune system to concentrate on fighting the cancer. The protocol consists of blood electrification (a weak [low power / current] form of electroporation) that inactivates the infectivity of blood borne pathogens, treatment using a brief duration pulsed electro magnetic field (PEMF) to kill pathogens within the lymphatic system and similar tissues, the drinking of distilled / demineralized water that has been electrolyzed by a low DC constant current set of 0.9999 pure silver electrodes producing argyria-safe 5 to 10 ppm colloidal silver, and the separate consumption of ozonated water. Ozone is O 3 , a form of energized oxygen that is formed either from high voltage (7 to 10 kilovolts) corona plasma discharge energy, or from exposure of oxygen to an intense quartz encapsulated mercury vapor germicidal ultraviolet light source. . Alternative health care providers also combine this Beck Protocol with further herbs, and dietary supplements such as those suggested by Hulda Regehr Clark. . An old truck driver stumbled upon a cancer treatment that has had a high success rate. The old guy's name is Jim Kelmun who's nickname is Dr. Jim. He has supposedly treated over 200 cases of late stage terminal cancer. See >"maple syrup" "baking soda" OR "sodium bicarbonate" cancer cure OR protocol "Jim Kelmun"
