Interesting article, except it gives the 5 yr. survival rate as "5%" which is absolutely NOT correct. Maybe they're trying to exaggerate the importance of their research.
The lowest number I've seen is 15%, with up to 35% for people who are diagnosed early. (though don't ask me where specifically I read those)
Plus remember that statistics only tell what happens to large groups of people. They do NOT say what will happen in YOUR case!
