“The whole world is concerned about Apple. I’m concerned about Silicon Valley,” said Mr. Perlman, the entrepreneur. “I need Apple to be harrying Microsoft. We need someone stirring the pot. God forbid that there is no one stirring the pot anymore. We’ll become Detroit.”
-CrossPOST Look folks - this doesn't look good- Steve has pancreatic cancer but he has the more survivable form- the islet cell tumor version vs the duct version which is more fatal. I'm trying to find out what the survival rate is for the latter. The former is 5% survival rate after 5 years and the average survival time is 3 to 6 months, BUT Steve does NOT have that type.
The survival for the Islet form depends upon whether the form is benign or malignant and if the latter HOW far has it spread. There are so many unknowns that have NOT been disclosed in Job's case... 1. was it malignant or not ?, and 2. if so had it spread and 3. if so how far ? I think (If we accept their word it's benign and has screwed up his hormones), BUT we don't know that for sure.
"Islet cell cancers overall have a more favorable prognosis than cancers of the exocrine pancreas, and the median survival from diagnosis is three and a half years. This is mainly due to their slow-growing nature. Insulinomas have a five-year survival rate of 80% and gastrinomas have 65%. When malignant, islet cell cancers do not generally respond well to chemotherapy, and the treatment is mainly palliative. Most patients with metastasis do not survive five years. "
