A 34-year-old male asked:
If pancreatic cancer was indeed the cause of symptoms (urq disc & occ. floating stool) wouldn't it be advanced enough to show on ct or blood work?

Cancer phobia: Of course. It's human to be concerned about cancer because it is deadly if it cannot be treated, and there's so much misinformation. The "floating stools" of pancreatic cancer are obviously abnormal and are accompanied by obvious jaundice. If "urq disc" means discomfort in the right upper quadrant, look for another cause. If this baseless fear is obsessive, your physician can help. Cheers.
