Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors are becoming more common (the bad news) and also more treatable (the good news).
Pancreatic cancer is a dreaded and especially deadly type of cancer. About 44,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year, accounting for approximately 3% of all cancer diagnoses. Unless some dramatic breakthroughs in treatment occur, fewer than 3,000 will be alive in five years.
