Pancreatic Cancer

Terrified still

11/19/2007

Question:

Thank you for answering my previous post regarding my concerns with Pancreatic cancer. Although my only symptom seems to be nausea and middle back pain, I do have another question: How obvious is the yellowing of the "whites" in the eyes with the Jaundice symptom? The whites of my eyes arent pure white, but now I am concerned!

Answer:

It is the change in color which is more important; but lab tests are the best diagnostic for jaundice.
