In brief: Yellow skin
Patients often present with painless jaundice since the bile ducts can be obstructed.
But there can be abdominal pain, bloating, change in stool color, fever, night sweats, and weight loss with or without loss of appetite.

In brief: Painless jaundice
Unfortunately pancreatic cancer is usually silent, unless it involves the head of the pancreas, which can cause painless jaundice (yellowness in the white part of the eye, dark urine, light stool).
In advanced cases there can be pain, mostly in the mid abdominal region that radiates to back. Change in bowel habits, new onset of diabetes, difficulty digesting foods can be some of the symptoms.
