In brief: See a doctor

The first thing to do in the work up of a possible pancreatic caricnoma is to visit with a doctor and have him/her take a history and perform a physical examination.
If there is concern for cancer, the physician can perform laboratory testing and imaging studies to investigate the biochemical functioning of the pancreas and its anatomy. If those are concerning, then a biopsy may be performed.
