In brief: It depends

Some patients are cured of this disease.
Those patients have small tumors that are surgically removed. There are other types such as a serous cystadenomas which are benign. Neuroendocrine tumors can have a long life span. Unfortunately, mostpancreatic cancers are advanced and have a survival of months.
