Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related death and the third most common cancer, excluding skin cancer, among men and women in the U.S. today. Still, early diagnosis often leads to a complete cure of the disease and the death rate from colorectal cancer has been going down steadily for the past 15 years.
Unlike colon cancer, pancreatic cancer is not nearly as frequent, occurring in about 1 in 72 people, but the prognosis is much more grim, with fewer than 4 percent diagnosed alive after 5 years.
