28 yo clear colonoscopy and endoscopy, and all full blood work that came back normal as well. Could pancreatic cancer be causing my low abdomen pain?

Highly unlikely: Put your mind at ease. Pancreatic cancer is rare below age 45. The pain of pancreatic cancer usually is in the pit of the stomach, not the lower abdomen, and radiates around to the sides and/or straight thru to the back. It may be intermittent and made worse by eating or lying supine. It is frequently worse at night. Lying in a curled or fetal position may improve the pain. ...Read more
