If symptoms were from pancreatic cancer. If untreated would'nt it progress rapidly in a year? Ct and blood and stool tests normal but still worried.

Unlikely pancreas ca. Untreated pancreas cancer would often lead to death within one year. Also, except in the very early stage, a ct scan should show an untreated pancreatic cancer. I don't know your symptoms, but they are not likely due to pancreatic cancer.
Yes, usually. Your symptoms are frequently seen upper GI problems in people with or without cancer. Yes, untreated pancreas cancer usually progresses to cause even greater problems over a year's time, including pain, weight loss or jaundice, often in folks in their 50's-70's. But, ongoing gastritis could be another problem worth treating, so don't ignore your symptoms just because its unlikely to be cancer.

Likelyhood of pancreatic cancer in 34yr male with urq disc. Occ. Floating stool? Normal CT scan of abd/pelvis, u.S, blood, enzyme, stool tests normal.

Floaters are fine. The usual reason for a bowel movement floating is extra trapped gas; this varies with diet, gum-chewing, roughage, how much you talked & swallowed your saliva. When due to fat malabsorption (a much less common explanation) the person is clearly sick; if due to pancreatic cancer you'd be jaundiced. Any further concerns are best discussed with your physician.

Stop worrying. You have nothing to worry about except that fact that you are still a smoker, which i hope you'll stop.

Worried about pancreatic cancer. Ct scan normal, blood and stool & us normal. Symptoms started almost a yr ago. If it was cancer, would I be worse by now?

No. Pancreatic cancer is rare and often asymptomatic until it has advanced significantly. Symptoms are vague and nonspecific unfortunately. It is unlikely you have it. Read more...
Yes. Frankly, if you had untreated pancreatic cancer for over a year, you probably would be dead. Read more...
You would be dead! Survival for pancreatic cancer is about a year, even with treatment. With a normal ct scan-it should not be a worry, unless one developed since then. My sister-in-law survived pancreatic ca, because it was inadvertently disovered on a ct done for other reasons. It is asymptomatic early, until it metastisizes . Read more...
Isn't cancer. Yes, pancreatic cancer would have progressed by now. But what worries me more is that you are still concerned bout this after all those tests and work-up were normal. Seems like there is something more under it all that is bothering you. Might be best to talk to a professional about your fears and anxieties before they overtake your lifestyle. Read more...

Worry. It seems that worry is the big culprit for you. If your tests do not indicate cancer, then in all probability you're fine. But you should get regular tests to ease your mind. Then you're doing the best you can do, and settling worry is also important to your health. Too much worry can impair your immune system, so practice dropping worries and see a supportive therapist.

Should I worry about pancreatic cancer? Urq disc.&occ floating stool. Normal stool tests, CT scan, colonoscopy, u.S., hida scan, endoscopy=gerd/gast. I'm 34

Probably not. It appears that all test are normal except for the egd or endoscopy showing gastritis. Assuming normal blood workup as well, i would say that it is not likely that you have pancreatic cancer. My suggestion is that you sit down with your doctor and discuss all tests results and treatment plan. Good luck! Read more...

Yes, you can . You mentioned nothing suspicious for pancreatic cancer. A normal ct scan is encouraging but is not 100% accurate. If there are suspicious symptoms or chances on a ct scan, a normal ca-19.9 (a blood test that is nearly specific for pancreatic cancer) would be reassuring. Read more...
