Pancreatic Cancer–What to Know!

Pancreatic Cancer can be a “silent killer” but knowing the symptoms will help! Weight loss is one signal for you that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Sudden, unintentional weight loss can be the sign of a serious illness like pancreatic cancer, although it can also take place after a stressful event.

Weight loss can take place because the pancreas plays an important role in the digestive system, which can be disrupted by the cancer, so food is not properly absorbed by the body.

Jaundice is another obvious symptom that, if occurs, you should see a doctor immediately.

Anyone with jaundice – yellow skin and whites of the eyes – should see their GP straight away. People who develop jaundice may also feel itchy and notice pale faeces and dark urine.
