Are their any natural cures for pancreatic cancer?

No. Unfortunately not. Even with surgery for early stage disease the cure rate is still great. New therapies have improved survival but nothing homeopathic. Hope this helps.
No. The only cure for cancer of the pancreas is surgery followed by adjuvant therapy of chemo or chemo and radiation.

Can pancreatic cancer be cured with radiation?

Maybe - adjuvant. Pancreas cancer is basically divided into 1) resectable (by surgery) 2) borderline resectable 3) metastatic (spread distantly). Radiation may be used after surgical resection as adjuvant therapy to help local control to prevent relapse. Radiation may also be used alone or with chemo to "downstage" or shrink the tumor to allow surgery. In general, radiation therapy by itself it likely not curative. Read more...
Not likely. Radiation serves primarily as an adjunctive treatment, offered in order to improve local control. There are very few "complete responses" when we resect tumors after radiation.

Surgical resection, when possible, still offers the only real chance of cure. Read more...
