Is it true that Pancreatic Cancer takes 10 years to grow?
« on: March 28, 2014, 01:05:38 PM »
 So lately my fear has been PC due to stomach and side pain as well as itching. I read that PC takes 10 years to develop is this true? I ask because I had a Abdominal CT scan a little over 2 years ago and it was clear. Could a PC Tumor of grown since then ?
By the way im a male 30 years old and a non smoker

I think they are actually one of the more aggressive cancers, you might be thinking of colon cancer

Your chances of having pancreatic cancer at 30 are incredibly remote.  Virtually unheard of.  The average age at diagnosis is 72
