Abstract

Pancreatic cancer will become the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States by 2030. Survival improves when it is identified at an early-stage and resected. Increasing public attention and cross-section imaging may shift detection to earlier stages. We found a small total increase in the proportion of stage-I cancer relative to all stages and a significant increase compared to distant disease in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database. Despite this, our ability to screen and identify early-stage disease is still lacking. Additional research and population-based interventions are necessary to improve early detection.
