Some people use numbers called statistics to figure out their chances of getting cancer. Or they use them to try to figure out their chances of dying from cancer. Because no two people are alike, statistics can’t be used to predict what will happen to one person. The statistics below describe large groups of people. They do not take into account a person's own risk factors, such as family history, behaviors, or cancer screenings. If you have questions, talk with your healthcare provider.
Here are some statistics about pancreatic cancer:
About 53,670 new cases of this cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2017.
About 43,090 people will die of pancreatic cancer in 2017.
The average person's risk of getting this cancer in their lifetime is about 1 in 65. Your chance of getting this cancer may be higher or lower. This depends on your risk factors.
