Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
He has pancreatic cancer. Treatment depends on stage, type and spread. In early stage surgery is useful. In later stage chemotherapy and radiotherapy is only treatment options. Gemcitabin is drug of choice for chemotherapy. Survival depends on stage of cancer and treatment. Consult you doctor and start treatment as early as possible.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have any doubts then contact me at, I will be happy to answer you.
Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.
