In brief: 96% by 5yrs expire..

Sobering statistics.
Acs 2013 stats: '...45, 220 will be dxd 38, 460 will die. Lifetime risk of getting it is only 1.47%...' ~3/4 of those dxd will die in the first year.

This is correct. The numbers are for the common exocrine adenocarcinoma. There are some less-common cancer types that arise in the pancreas that are less aggressive. Be sure you know the type before making plans. Best wishes.
