Pancreatic Cancer Staging

American Cancer Society provides an update of 5-year relative corresponding survival rate based on pancreatic cancer stages and it’s as follow:

Pancreatic Cancer Stage I: 12% - 14%;

Pancreatic Cancer Stage II: 5%; - 7%

Pancreatic Cancer Stage III: 3%;

Pancreatic Cancer Stage IV: 1%.

Early treatment is an important factors to improve the 5-year relative survival rate of pancreatic cancer. Doctors measure treatment plan and predict patients’ prognosis for pancreatic patients based on staging information.

According to TNM staging, T is primary tumor, N is the cancer cells has spread to lymph nodes, M is cancer cells has spread to distant organ.

The extent of the tumor (T): TX show main tumor cannot be assessed due to lack information; T0 means no evidence of a primary tumor; T1 show it has not spread outside of the pancreas; T1a is the cancer no bigger than 2cm; T1b is the tumor bigger than 2cm; T2 show cancer cells had spread to duodenum, gallbladder, and tissue surround the pancreas; T3 show cancer cells had spread to stomach, spleen, colon and aorta.

The spread to nearby lymph nodes (N): NX mean regional lymph nodes cannot be assessed due to lack information; N0 show it has not spread to nearby lymph nodes; N1 show had spread to nearby lymph nodes.

The spread to distant sites (M): M still cannot determine; M0 show it has not spread to distant sites; M1 show it has spread to distant organ.

Different stages of pancreatic cancer have different treatments. In St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, our Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) will plan treatment for pancreatic cancer patients base on their body conditions and cancer stage, size and the location of the tumor. Minimally invasive therapy will help pancreatic cancer patients avoid side effect of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
