In brief: It' difficult
Pancreatic cancer is one of the more difficult cancers to diagnose early.
When it develops symptoms such as jaundice and pain shooting to back, it's already late. Common things come first and ca pancreas is not common. The bottom line is if one has persistent reflux worsening with medications or more weight loss, you need to follow up with testing such as ct scan, endoscopy.
