Is There Any Cure For The Pancreatic Cancer?

Postby MacBain » Wed Sep 27, 2017 6:31 pm

The survival rate for diagnosed stage IV pancreatic cancer after 5 years is 0%.


My Mother passed away less than 4 months after being diagnosed.


There are things that can be done for early stage pancreatic cancer, but it must be caught early for anything to have effect.
However, by the time there are symptoms, it is usually too late.

Is There Any Cure For The Pancreatic Cancer?

Postby Sayers » Wed Sep 27, 2017 6:36 pm

STAGE IV means just before terminal position and in my opinion cure may not be possible at all. If your doctor is assuring cure in 6 months, then there is nothing like that and you have to go with his word and treatments. But a patient with chemotherapy of 6 month, living there after is also have a remote possibility. The prognosis of Pancreatic cancer is that Patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer typically have a poor prognosis partly because the cancer usually causes no symptoms early on, leading to metastatic disease at time of diagnosis. Median survival from diagnosis is around 3 to 6 months; 5-year survival is much less than 5% With 32,180 new diagnoses in the United States every year, and 31,800 deaths, mortality approaches 99%, giving pancreatic cancer the #1 fatality rate of all cancers and the #4 cancer killer in the United States amongst both men and women. Any way please try as nothing is in our hands. Best of luck-

Is There Any Cure For The Pancreatic Cancer?

I don't think there is a cure for pancreatic cancer unless it is found very early which is unfortunately not the case for most patients.
You can ask specific questions pertinent to your situation at http://www.cyberknife.com/Forum.aspx

This is a site manned by physicians who are experienced in the various modalities used to treat tumors and other conditions.


These physicians and often patients who have undergone various treatments will respond to your questions.
Unfortunately, pancreatic cancer is often a "silent" cancer and is usually not diagnosed until the late stages.
The CyberKnife has been used to treat pancreatic cancer and has given many, many patients a better quality of life.


You can also go to PubMed at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed and search medical publications under CyberKnife and pancreatic cancer.
Stanford has treated pancreatic cancer the longest with the CyberKnife and his papers would be worthwhile to look up there.


You can also go to http://www.cksociety.org/Content.aspx?id=1488 and look at the annual meeting abstracts for the past 3 years.
There are abstracts on treating pancreatic cancer as well as thoracic, prostate, liver, lung, spinal and intracranial lesions.

Is There Any Cure For The Pancreatic Cancer?

Ramzi, There is no "cure" for any kind of cancer and unfortunately pancreatic cancer is one of the worst. By the time symptoms are noticed and it is diagnosed, it is usually too late. If caught very early there are treatments (but no cure) that help but very few are caught early.


P.S. You will see a lot of nonsense on the net about "natural" cures, or "herbal" cures, "Miracle Cures". etc., etc., ad nauseum but, all they are is just that - nonsense, or worse. Some of them are scams to make money off of desperate people. Be very wary and if something sounds too good to be true, well, it is just that -too good to be true.

I can only recommend taking the chemo pills like Lance Armstrong. My girlfiend has stage three melanoma and has been lucky so far... Stage 4 cancer is fatal 19 times out of 20... best enjoy what you have. Pancreatic cancer is the only cancer that is significantly worse odds than melanoma...
the pill chemo for melanoma doubles the odds of survival from 7% to about 13% after 5 years.

Is There Any Cure For The Pancreatic Cancer?

Hi Ramzi,

Yes, your Immune System.

Pancreatic enzymes could also help (Wobenzymes one of the most researched).

I think any cancer can be healed provided the immune system is strong enough to kill the cancer cells. We all get cancer cells daily as there are lot of carcinogens around us, plus our diet is mostly cooked food, dairy, meat, sugar, bread etc.. , and the stress is also lowering immune system and is acidic, but because not all of us have low immune system, we get to destroy and kill the cancer cells so they do not get the opportunity to grow.

I think that any illness is a wake up call to learn, change and improve not only health by the life and living habits also. To want to live, there should be happiness, joy and hope in the future, and you should focus on all you truly want to do with your life in the future in order to find a meaning and strength to heal and overcome this illness.

So, the most important thing is to start changing life and eating habits.


Prior to cutting of some vital (or any) body parts, or being involved in damaging and expensive radiation or chemo, I would learn as much as possible about natural ways to improve immune system and heal from cancer.


Distilled or filtered water, veggies juices, wheat grass juices, raw living food, sprouts - everything that is alkaline. If you can keep your body alkaline (you can use simple urine test to check her PH), the cancer can not grow.


People had healed from so called deathbeds using some of this natural and inexpensive therapies.

There are many books, studies, movies etc.. on the subject. If you are interested, start with some links below and then continue searching...

And Juicing (Veggies, Greens and Wheat grass juices) and Raw Foods Veggies diet is the best immune system booster:
