Epigastric pain, back and upper right quad pain for 6 weeks. Pancreas ct scan with contrast normal. Worried about pancreatic cancer. Ct reassuring?

YES. the CT is reassuring however a lesion in your upper GI tract (esophagus/stomach) should be ruled out as well! Ask the Health Care Provider who ordered your CT scan...he/she probably can "take a look"(endoscopy) Hope this helps/good luck/be well Dr Z.
