Q. Can any one give me information about Carcinoma of the pancreas?

What is the prognosis for carcinoma of the pancreas? I want to know as much as I can information on carcinoma of the pancreas.
A1I’m sorry to say that 95% people that have pancreatic carcinoma do not survive. Apparently the area around it and the pancreas itself is without sensory nerves. That means that when it starts to be painful – it’s much too late…this is a silent killer.
Sorry for the bad news…
A2Prognosis:
Carcinoma of the pancreas has poor prognosis. Reported 5-year survival rates range from 2% to 5%. The reported operative mortality rate of radical pancreaticoduodenectomy is 10-15%.

Athe Pancreas does not have sensory nerves in it. this is the reason why pancreas cancer is the most deadly- you don't realize it's there until it's much too late. so this pain you describe does not ad up to be from the Pancreas.
i think this is a very good reason to see a Doctor.
