Be kept in the loop about our latest news on pancreatic cancer, the charity and our supporters.
The 5-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer has risen to 7.3%, in the UK. Though it may seem small, after almost five decades without a meaningful increase in survival, we are beginning to see a slow but positive trend upwards.
In 2010, when Pancreatic Cancer Action was founded, survival was around 3% and had not increased in years. We are beginning to make inroads into the disease, so more people can survive for longer.
However, pancreatic cancer still has the lowest 5-year survival rate of all the 22 most common cancers. this is largely due to late diagnosis.
