What is the life expectancy of stage 4 pancreatic cancer?

Very short

Stage IV of any cancer means the cancer has spread to the distant organs. This could mean the liver, bone, brain etc. Randy Pausch, a computer engineer from Carnegie Mellon wrote "The Last Lecture". It is about his experience with advanced pancreatic cancer. I think you might want consider it.

What would be the average life expectancy with pancreatic cancer?

1-2 years

Cancer
This can vary depending on the stage of disease and the treatment plan but pancreatic cancer remains a very serious and highly lethal disease. Many patients will develop metastatic disease and ultimately pass away due to disease, commonly within 2 years of diagnosis.

What is the average life expectancy for a person with pancreatic cancer and who had the whipple procedure?

Lymph nodes

Pancreas
The most important variable for survival for patients after the Whipple procedure (provided they survive the surgery itself, and presuming that the cancer has been completely removed) has generally been lymph node involvement. This is generally the best indication that the pancreatic cancer has or has not spread beyond the initial site.

How does one get pancreatic cancer at a young age?

Don't Know

Open-uri20130310-20100-15k76uk
85% of cancers are sporadic. When it happens in young patients (<50 yrs) we need to consider hereditary syndromes (ei: BRCA1 mutation) and familial syndromes. Most likely we won't know why it happened. What's important now is treatment. Speak to the oncologist who will help set a plan of treatment.

Because of

One of my parents had a pancreatic cancer before age 50, does it mean that pancreatic cancer if familial.

No

Cancer
great question, this is a devastating cancer so i understand your concern. that being said some forms of pancreatic cancers can tend to run in families (very rare) there are rare syndromes called MEN 1 and MEN 2 (nothing to do with the sex of a person, the letters stand for something else) that have pancreatic cancer. google it, however you may want to ask your doctor about genetic counceling.

Any new information about how much sausage & bacon one must eat before there's a rise in pancreatic cancer risk?

No

Cancer
You're probably referring to the recent study linking consumption of red or processed meats to pancreatic cancer. The study is far from definitive. You'll notice they found a link only in men, and not in studies done in the US or Europe. In other words, it could just be a statistical fluke. http://www.nature.com/bjc/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/bjc2011585a.html

Dr. Liawaty Ho answered:

Can drinking soda cause a greater risk of Pancreatic cancer? I normally drink about one every day (12 oz). I drink V8 Fusion too. What to do?

Probably not direct

Pancreatic_cancer
probably it is not directly associated with pancreatic cancer. However, as stated by my colleague here- drinking soda is associated with increased risk for obesity and diabetes. In epidemiology study, obesity and diabetes are related to increased risk for pancreatic cancer and so many other medical problems.
