Answer

Worldwide, pancreatic cancer ranks 11th in incidence but 7th as a cause of cancer death. [41] The age-standardized rate (ASR) incidence ranges widely, from 7.7 per 100,000 population in Europe to 2.2 per 100,000 population in Africa. Among individual countries, ASRs range from 0.81 per 100,000 in males in India to 15.3 per 100,000 in males in Latvia and the Republic of Moldova. [41]
