    Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer

    MSNBC is reporting that 80's heart throb Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and is being treated for it at Stanford Medical Center in Palo Alto, California.

    Doctor: Patrick Swayze Has Cancer

    updated 16 minutes ago


    PALO ALTO, Calif. - Patrick Swayze's doctor has said the actor has actor, and only has a "limited amount of the disease." Actor Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and is currently undergoing treatment." Patricks physician Dr. George Fisher said.

    Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far. All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic. Patrick is continuing his normal schedule during this time, which includes working on upcoming projects. The outpouring of support and concern he has already received from the public is deeply appreciated by Patrick and his family.

    According to the Stanford Hospital Web site, there is a Dr. George Albert Fischer M.D., gastronintestinal oncology, at Stanford Medical Center. It was not certain as of Wednesday afternoon whether this was the same doctor.
    There were conflicting reports out about "Dirty Dancing" star Patrick Swayze suffering from terminal cancer.


    The National Enquirer claimed in an online report Wednesday that it has learned in a "shocking world exclusive" that Swayze was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January and only has five weeks to live.

    The Enquirer also said that the cancer has spread to other organs. The report said that Swayze, 55, is receiving radical chemotherapy treatment as an outpatient at the Stanford Medical Center-- minutes from the Palo Alto, Calif., airport, where the actor and his wife, Lisa Niemi, have been flying in to on their private plane.

    NBC11 calls to the airport have not been returned.

    Gary Migdol of Stanford University said he cannot confirm or deny that Swayze was there due to HIPPA laws.

    However, a "very good source" told celebrity blogger Perez Hilton said that Swayze has been at rehearsals on a new cheerleading movie at a studio in Century City, Calif., and "definitely does not look like he has five more weeks of life left ."

    "I'm not sure of his medical condition(s), but if he is gravely ill, he is hiding it very well," the source said on Hilton's blog.

    Fox News online, which also reported on the Enquirer's report, said that a call to Swayze's representatives have not been returned.

    The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Swayze had surgery for a "serious gastro-intestinal procedure" at a California hospital in early February.

    Swayze has also starred in such films as "Ghost" and "Road House." He has been married to Niemi since 1975.

    Aww, that's horrible. I was told (when a friend had ovarian and brain cancer) that once cancer has spread to your pancreas, that it's very hard to treat.

    That's terrible. Pancreatic cancer gives the least chance of survival. I wish him the best.

    I've lost a few relatives to it. Once they've been diagnosed, they've only lived a few weeks to maybe a couple months, and it's a miserable existence.

    I wish him nothing but the best.

    I fell in lust with him during the show North and South. My prayers go out to his family especially his wife Lisa.

    Re: Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer

    This is very sad news.
    I think my favorite movie he was in was "Too Wong Foo: Thanks For Everything Julie Newmar" - he was so convincing in that movie - wife and I found it so humorous.

    I'm so sad to learn of his ill health - and because it's cancer.

    I love that movie! John Leguizamo was my favorite though.

    It is horribly sad news. Patrick Swayze and his wife are both such beautiful dancers.

    Re: Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer

    When we get a patient at work that's admitted with pancreatic cancer we tend to look at it each other with that "ugh, such a bummer" look becuase it is pretty much the end of the line. there is a surgical procedure called a Whipple that can slow the progression, but that is a massive and hard to recover from surgery.

    and i agree he and his wife are just lovely dancers, i hope he has a lot of love, comfort and laughter in these coming months

    Re: Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer

    Yeah. I heard this news. The headline read that he has cancer, and then when I read it was pancreatic I knew that his days are now numbered. Poor guy.

    My aunt died of pancreatic cancer. She lived less than a year or two after being diagnosed.

    Also Luciano Pavarotti and Michael Landon. They both had pancreatic cancer and did not live more than a couple years after being diagnosed.

    This is really sad news.
