At present, there are approximately 28,300 new cases of pancreatic cancer in the United States. It is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in men and women. Approximately 2 out of 10 patients with cancer of the pancreas will live at least one year after the cancer is found, but only a very few will survive for five or more years. The editors have brought together a stellar team of oncologists from surgery, medicine, and radiation therapy to provide a concise yet thorough guide to the understanding and management of pancreatic cancer. From epidemiology and genetics to diagnosis, management, and reconstruction, coverage of the subject is inclusive.
