Pancreatic cancer is one of the worst cancers as very few people survive it for more than 1-2 years. Taking chemotherapy can buy extra time, may be an additional year or two. I would have him see a medical Oncologist and take additional treatment; otherwise this tumor is likely to spread further within a matter of months.
