In brief: Pain, weight loss
Symptoms and signs can include pain in the upper abdomen, sometimes traveling to the back, and weight loss.
Jaundice, a yellowing of the skin and eyes, can occur. Doctors may be able to detect a tender mass in the abdomen or enlarged lymph nodes. Unfortunately sometimes these symptoms aren't present until later. Smoking and obesity are 2 important and modifiable risk factors for pancreatic cancer.
