Thank you for the response, in reviewing the cancer assessment materials a little closer it says the general population has a 1% general risk to have pancreatic cancer by age 80. The risk with an ATM mutation is elevated which is pretty vague but probably based on other risk factors as well. It references a study by Roberts NJ, et al, ATM mutations ..., cancer discovery, 2012.

I donít smoke or drink and work out 4 to 5 days per week and I do take a super circumin supplement. I also have a thorough annual check up.

Thanks for the advice; itís an incidious type of cancer that typically has no symptoms until it is at a later stage. I am glad to hear you got your diagnosis when it was highly treatable.

Dave
