Answer

Worldwide, pancreatic cancer ranks 13th in incidence but 8th as a cause of cancer death. [41]

Most other countries have incidence rates of 8-12 cases per 100,000 persons per year. In some areas of the world, pancreatic cancer is quite infrequent; for example, the incidence in India is less than 2 cases per 100,000 persons per year.
