Facts and statistics


The Facts:


Five-year survival is less than 7%. This figure has not improved significantly in almost forty years

These figures are the  latest available statistics on pancreatic cancer (at the time of publication). Because the reporting system for cancer statistics varies with the cancer registries across the countries of the United Kingdom and for mortality published by the ONS, there is usually a delay of approximately 18 months for the collation of incidence and of 12 months for the collation of mortality figures. This is why we, in 2018, are citing figures from 2015.

Below are tables of the latest incidence, mortality and survival data by UK nation, plus an overview of the UK as a whole.
