Pancreatic cancer doesn’t often cause symptoms in its early stages. By the time the symptoms appear, the disease has often already spread to other body parts.
- Jaundice is one of the first symptoms of pancreatic cancer.
- Pain in the belly area or in the middle of the back is a very common sign of advanced pancreatic cancer.
- Persistent digestive problems and swollen gallbladder can also be symptoms of pancreatic cancer.
People with any or a combination of these symptoms should discuss their concerns with their doctors.
