Pancreatic cancer remains one of the most lethal cancers, with a survival rate of only 10%. Despite the numerous advancements in medical technology and treatments over the past few decades, the survival rate for pancreatic cancer patients has not improved much. Due to the difficulty in diagnosing the cancer at an early stage, it can spread quickly and become inoperable. Chemotherapy can sometimes prolong life, but it is not always effective. Researchers are still searching for better methods to detect and treat pancreatic cancer in its early stages, and there is hope that new breakthroughs will emerge in the coming years.
