Possible: Unfortunately, cancer shows no limits in terms of what ages it can affect. However, cancer is much less likely in a 19 year old. I recommend waiting for official biopsy results before assuming this is cancer. It will be important to know not only if it is a pancreatic cancer, but also to know what type of cancer.
