Pancreatic Cancer: Whole-Body Symptoms
As it grows and spreads, pancreatic cancer affects the whole body. Such symptoms can include:

  • Weight loss
  • Malaise
  • Loss of appetite
  • Elevated blood sugars. Some people with pancreatic cancer develop diabetes as the cancer impairs the pancreas’ ability to produce insulin. (However, the vast majority of people with a new diagnosis of diabetesdo not have pancreatic cancer.)

I was never diagnosed with this condition. However…

In short, these are the general symptoms of pancreatic cancer, as reported by the world-famous Mayo Clinic.

“Diseases & Conditions: Pancreatic cancer”
Signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer often don’t occur until the disease is advanced. They may include:
Pain in the upper abdomen that radiates to your back
Loss of appetite or unintended weight loss
New-onset diabetes
Blood clots
• Yellowing of your skin and the whites of your eyes (jaundice)

When to see a doctor
See your doctor if you experience unexplained weight loss or if you have persistent fatigue, abdominal pain, jaundice, or other signs and symptoms that bother you. Many conditions can cause these symptoms, so your doctor may check for these conditions as well as for pancreatic cancer.」 (emphases added)

But the WebMD source cited Cherry Mae Mamalias by is more comprehensive, providing symptoms of rarer types & the sneakier symptoms: https://www.webmd.com/cancer/pancreatic-cancer/pancreatic-cancer-symptoms#1

Requires a medical diagnosis

There are no symptoms in the early stages. Later stages are associated with symptoms, but these can be non-specific, such as lack of appetite and weight loss.

People may experience:

Pain areas: in the abdomen or middle back

Gastrointestinal: fluid in the abdomen or nausea

Whole body: fatigue or loss of appetite

Also common: dark urine, weight loss, or yellow skin and eyes.
