    Rare and Aggressive Pancreatic Cancer Claims Steve Jobs at 56

    Apple Inc. has apparently decided against disclosing the cause of Steve Jobs' death at the untimely age of 56. But it was no secret that he had been battling a rare form of pancreatic cancer, from about 2004, when he underwent surgery for it.

    With a very low survival rate of 4 per cent, pancreatic cancer is the fourth most common cause of cancer death in the U.S., as well as across the world. There are two known types of pancreatic cancer - adenocarcinoma and neuroendocrine tumor. Jobs was affected by the latter, an extremely rare form with a prevalence rate of 35 affected patients per 100,000.

    Jobs' tumor was removed in 2004 in a successful procedure. But the malignancy had spread beyond the pancreas and, in 2009, Jobs took another leave of absence to undergo a liver transplant. He took his third leave of absence in January of this year, before resigning as CEO in August.

    "I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's CEO, I would be the first to let you know," Jobs wrote in a letter to the board of directors Aug. 24. "Unfortunately, that day has come."

    The compliments now flooding the media are well deserved - it's sad to see such a brilliant intellect passing away so relatively young - he was only 56.

    He was a true genius, but he had common sense, too. A terrible loss for the world.
