Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Treatment of pancreatic cancer depends on type and stage of cancer. In early stage surgery is possible. In late stage treatment of choice is chemotherapy. Despite of treatment prognosis remains poor. Life expectancy is not good. Consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
