In brief: Not likely, old.

Pancreatic cancer presents at middle (50's) to older age.
Patients have a history of long standing diabetes, chronic pancreatitis, and smoking. This is probably why these are not seen in children.

In brief: Yes

It's exceedingly rare, but kids can get a kind of pancreatic cancer called pancreatoblastoma.
For the most common form, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, the earliest I have heard is in the twenties.
