Infographic: What You Should Know about Pancreatic Cancer
It’s important to know if you’re at risk for pancreatic cancer and what you can do to prevent the disease from occurring. This year, more than 55,000 people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Only about 11,000 are expected to survive, giving pancreatic cancer the lowest five-year survival rate of any cancer.
