What is the survival rate for pancreatic cancer?
If we take a look at all pancreatic cancers, one-year survival rate is about 20%. The five-year rate drops to about 5%. These dismal figures are probably due to the fact that about 9 out of 10 patients have a tumor or tumors in other places as well as the pancreas when they are diagnosed. Very often it is seen that malignancy is extensive and outside surgical intervention. Should resection be done, a patient might expect to survive for one and a half to two years. The five-year rate rises to about 10%. It may get into the 20% to 25% range if complete removal of the tumor is accomplished, provided the lymph nodes are free of invasion. The American Cancer Society generally has data (including statistics) for the different types of cancer. A link to their posting on pancreatic cancer can be found below.

Prostate cancer is more common in men with African-Caribbean and African backgrounds, but less common in men with Asian backgrounds. The survival rate for prostate cancer,… 75% of prostate cancer cases are diagnosed in men aged 65 years and over. Men under 50 account for around 1% of prostate cancer diagnoses. nutrition2000.com
bladder cancer has a very good survival rate. if the cancer is discovered early than the survival rate or five years is 94%. this is very good compared to other cancers we kno…w about today. however when the cancer has spread to the organs in the pelvic region than the rates drop down to 49% and once it has spread to the other organs the rate falls to 6%. this is a fact that bladder cancer is more common in men then women.- my great-grandfather has this :/
Depending on the stage of the cancer, the breast or tumor may be removed followed by intense rounds of radiation or chemotherapy to halt the division of cells and isolate the …primary tumor. These measures may also be taken to minimize pain and make the patient comfortable if they are in Stage IV. The five-year survival rate for a Stage IV or advanced breast cancer is slim. Most patients even with treatment only live on average between one and two years after the initial diagnosis.
According to the American Cancer Society, for all stages of pancreatic cancer combined, the one-year relative survival rate is 20% and the five-year rate is 4%. These low surv…ival rates are attributable to the fact that fewer than 10% of patients' tumors are confined to the pancreas alone at the time of diagnosis. In most cases, the malignancy has already progressed to the point where surgical removal is impossible.
The predicted survival rate for people with bone cancer is five years. Many people that are diagnosed with bone cancer survive well past five years.
This information is taken from Cancer.about.com Prognosis and survival rate can depend on a great many things. Type of cancer, treatments, lifestyle, and genetics all play a v…ery important role in being a cancer survivor. There are statistics available that sum up survival rates by breast cancer stage. The following are based on studies of a 5 year survival rate. Stage 0: 100% Stage I:100% Stage IIA: 92% Stage IIB:81% Stage IIIA:67% Stage IIIB:54% Stage IV:20%
No, not by conventional, allopathic medicine as promoted by the FDA, AMA and the Rockefellers. The Rockefellers are intersted in population reduction, making money, influencin…g government legislation, world government, and so on. My sister's inlaws did not want to hear about any alternative medicine methods for treatment of her mother-in-law's pancreatic cancer. These inlaws mostly did not graduate high school, and worshipped medical practitioners as gods. The mother-in-law was diagnosed after the actor Patrick Swayze. Whereas she plunged whole heartedly into allopathc medical treatments for the cancer including intense radiation, chemotherapy around November, Swayze did not. She died months later in 2008 in late February or early March from the treatments--not the disease. Patrick Swayze died one year and six months after this inlaw died. Some places where you look, you will find that statistics indicate that conventionally treated patients live shorter than alternatively treated ones. Months before being diagnosed, she was being heavily treated with various medications for pain and infection after she took a fall down the stairs and fractured vertabrae in her neck and had to wear a metal support system that was screwed into her skull to permit her neck to heal. This injury and the medication, and booze may have assisted the cancerous condition to take hold, and possibly delay the proper diagnosis from being made sooner. If you think about it a bit, if a medical study is fraudulent, you are less likely to discover it because there are all sorts of hidden tricks that can be done to make the study turn out the way that the sponsors of the study want it to. You are looking at a team of a few smart doctor medical scientists who 97% of the time have a financial conflict of interest because they were and may still be employed by the drug company or hospitals carrying out the treatments that they are trying to prove is / are good ones. On the otherhand, tens of thousands of individuals have come forward with testimonials saying that one or another of very many different alternative cancer treatments saved their individual lives even after they were pronounced a lost cause by conventional medicine. What is the likelihood that a person who is disinterested in your case, who was pronounced at the virge of death's door, who tried any number of diet and herb or super cheap electromedicine treatments is lying to you--they have nothing to sell to you, and have only found themselves in this situation after conventional medicine had given them up for dead, and have told you their solution to cancer for free. I think that the honesty of the vested interests of the medical scientists have to be called into question before any of the thousands of alternative medicine patient cancer survivors' honesty is called into question--it is just the law of averages that the few vested interests who want your money directly are going to be dishonest before thousands of strangers who were patients trying all sorts of different methods to save their own lives are going lie--these patients have nothing to gain from you. There are very many historical accounts of suppressed cures for all sorts of diseases, inventions, and scientific discoveries. Many of these have a common thread--money. The current "money powers that be" do not want to have low cost competing products and services introduced onto the market place. To prevent this they have lobbied governments heavily to enact legislation to stop it. These money men are monopolists who want a monopoly as your ownly choice from which to receive treatment. In the case of medicine, the history is fairly clear. Ever since the USA 1910 Flexner report was presented, Western medicine has all but outlawed anything that does not push patented, money making drugs, and expensive chronic disease treatment methods. The conventional medical research since the 1930s has made virtually no progress for many forms of cancer since five year survival rates remain the same. Laetrile / amygdalin, the Beck Protocol, Budwig diet, Gerson therapy, chelation therapy, Royal Rife radio frequency treatments, Antione Priore machine treatments, Georges Lahkovsky multiple wave oscillator treatments, metabolic therapy, medical ozone therapy, anti-fungal treatments (see Cancer as a fungus), oxygen therapy, peroxide treatments, cansema black salve medication, THC hemp oil extract (See the Rick Simpson Story). All of these alternative therapies and more are pooh-poohed unscientifically by the invested interest groups comprised of surgeons, drug companies, medical schools, and allopathic medical practitioners. Some non-vested, non-conflicted medical studies are finally starting to happen. South Korean medical scientists have labeled Laetrile as a very promising cancer control. Lots of studies of THC are being done in Europe whereas Rockefeller / drug company induced prohibition on cannabis in America has prevented researhers here from experimenting with the natural, unpatentable substance--otherwise they would face stiff jail time for possession, and attempting to re-prove / confirm its many anti-cancer benefits. 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.

Depending on the course of treatment your doctor may decide on (eg, removing the tumor(s), administering steroids to reduce inflammation, radiotherapy), your survival rate can… be anywhere from 75-90%, so long as the cancer doesn't metastisise anywhere else.

pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly cancers out there. most people that are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer live for about 6 months. that is average. i know someone w…ho lived for about a year in a half with this deadly cancer!! it is still a possibility that you could become cancer free.
Unfortunately this question is vague - This is extremely dependent on staging of the cancer. It's also dependent on type of cancerous cells. I'll give staging for invasive epi…thelial ovarian cancer and we'll go from there... The numbers after the --> are % relative 5-year survival I --> 89% IA --> 94% IB --> 91% IC --> 80% II --> 66% IIA --> 76% IIB -->67% IIC --> 57% III --> 34% IIIA --> 45% IIIB --> 39% IIIC --> 35% IV --> 18% Now this does change when you have different tumors or malignancies. Here's a comparison for staging for 5 year survival for Ovarian tumors of low malignant potential: I --> 99% II --> 98% III --> 96% IV --> 77% I wish you or your loved one good luck.
