Variable: All the 3 features you have mentioned are caused by obstruction of bile flow, so all 3 would occue together. Besides jaundice, there is usually indigestion, weight loss and abdominal pain which is progressively worse over weeks. If you had any of the above and these symptoms persist a CT scan of the abdomen may be the best way to find out if there is any such possibility(Cancer of Pancreas)
