7 Signs that indicate you have pancreatic cancer disease

There are several cancers in the world, but pancreatic cancer is one of the most dangerous and life-threatening because it is often hidden until it progresses and is difficult to treat. In some cases, signs and symptoms do not appear until after it has grown and has begun to spread outside the pancreas. According to "Healthline", below are symptoms that may indicate you have pancreatic cancer diseases.

Jaundice

This condition is the yellowing of your eyes and skin. Many people with pancreatic cancer generally have jaundice as one of the first symptoms.

Abdominal pain and bloating

Pancreatic cancer can cause a dull ache in the upper abdomen that extends to the back. This pain may come and go. Some people with pancreatic cancer also have uncomfortable abdominal swelling and may have an early feeling of fullness during meals.

Loss of appetite and weight loss

If you are experiencing unintentional weight loss as well as a loss of appetite, it could also be a warning sign of pancreatic cancer and other related cancer diseases.

Vomiting and nausea

Dark urine

The liver secretes a yellowish liquid to help your body digest food. This fluid is known as bile. When a tumor blocks the bile duct, the bilirubin cannot leave your body, and too much of it builds up in your body.

When you have an excess of bilirubin in your body, it can get into your urine and can stain it brown.

Swelling, redness, or pain in the leg

These could be signs of a blood clot in a deep leg vein. This is known as deep venous thrombosis. A clot is sometimes the first sign of pancreatic cancer.

Diarrhea

Pancreatic cancer can prevent you from properly absorbing nutrients from the foods you eat, which can lead to diarrhea.

If you see any of these symptoms, it may be a good reason to see your doctor. However, at the same time, you must remember that these symptoms may also be caused by a different condition, and do not always necessarily indicate pancreatic cancer.
