About Pancreatic Cancer


Signs and Symptoms

Unlike other diseases, pancreatic cancer is insidious: it is frequently diagnosed before any early symptoms occur. When symptoms do arise they may include:

·        Loss of appetite

·        Weight loss

·        Abdominal pain

·        High blood sugar levels

·        Fatigue

·        Nausea/vomiting.

Tumors that develop near the common bile duct may cause jaundice, which can yellow the skin and eyes. This has a silver lining: the visual symptoms of jaundice can alert doctors to the possible onset of pancreatic cancer.
