In brief: Yes?

As a rule, stage 4 cancer of the pancreas is incurable.
As to being terminal, it depends on the definition. If you mean it will kill the patient at some point, the vast majority of the times the answer is yes. If you mean it will kill the patient right away, it depends on the situation. Never say never, though, some patients have surprised me in the past. Sorry if it is about you or a loved one.
