Pancreatic Cancer Stages and Prognosis Directory

Pancreatic cancer prognosis largely depends on the cancer characteristics and how early it is found. Early pancreatic cancer can sometimes be cured with the Whipple procedure, but later-stage pancreatic cancer is hard to treat. Because it is difficult to detect pancreatic cancer, many people are diagnosed later, making a full recovery unlikely. Treatments such as chemo and radiation can slow the rate of cancer spread to provide a longer life for patients. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how pancreatic cancer is managed by stage and what the prognosis is for each stage.
