How Long Can One Live with Pancreatic Cancer without Treatment?

Q:
How long can one live with pancreatic cancer without treatment?

A:
To live with pancreatic cancer without treatment is practically an impossible thing. As we all know, some cancers in the early stage may be cured by surgery, and some cancers in the advanced stage may be controled and possibly cured by combining chemotherapy with radiotherapy or other treatments. However, for a disease as fatal as pancreatic cancer, the survival rate without treatment probably amount to zero.

There are cases where the patient, not knowing himself getting pancreatic cancer before, found it out four days before his death.

It is known that most patients of metastatic pancreatic cancer with proper treatment can survive 3-5 months or even a year. Without treatment, the remaining days could be numbered down to below three months or even less.
