Northern Ireland five-year relative survival (%) by period of diagnosis

The incidence of pancreatic cancer in 2000-2004 in Northern Ireland was only 160 cases per year. Therefore care must be taken when looking at the five-year survival percentages as they relate to very small numbers of patients & in many years can include less than 10 patients.
