Pancreatic cancer rates were highest in the Czech Republic for both men and women, and lowest in Sweden for men and in Portugal for women (Figure 14.2). Male rates of pancreatic cancer in both RoI and NI were close to the median of the countries shown; for women, they were below the median in NI and above the median in RoI.
