Pancreatic Cancer at a Glance
- About 95% of pancreatic cancer begins in the exocrine cells that make digestive juices.
- Islet Cell Tumors, or endocrine pancreas cancers, are rare.
- A little more than 40,000 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer each year.
- Over the past 15 to 25 years, rates of pancreatic cancer have dropped slightly in men and women. Research suggests the drop may be correlated with a decline in smoking rates in the general public.
