6. Your urine appears as dark as tea

Dark-hued urine that looks a lot like tea is considered a sign of excessive dehydration, but it is also considered to be one of the earliest signs of jaundice. Since the tumour doesn’t allow much bile to be excreted, the bilirubin levels within the blood raise alarming, and the urine starts to take a brownish colour.

If you cannot seem to bring back the normal light-yellow shade of your urine by drinking lots of water, chances are, you might be suffering from jaundice, which is one of the early signs of pancreatic cancer.

So, be sure to get your urine examined without delay.

7. The Itching Doesn’t Seem to Stop

Feeling extremely itchy all-over your skin, to the extent that you just can’t seem to stop itching yourself is considered one of the earliest symptoms of both, pancreatic cancer and jaundice.

Research reveals that when the bilirubin starts to accumulate up inside the skin, it can lead to the development itching before it even begins to turn yellow.

Often, patients have complained of itchiness, only to reveal yellow skin upon examination. So, if you seem to experience a great deal of itching without any specific cause, such as allergic reaction to a product or a bug bites, and it doesn’t seem to go away with the help of a soothing lotion, consult your doctor right away.

  2. My husband had all these symptoms…they started out slowly then came on altogether within a few months…he died 6 months after his initial diagnoses. But had he gone for help sooner when his symptoms first began he may have been able to beat it. We’ll never know. But if anyone else reads this and you suspect you or a loved one might have Pancreatic Cancer or any type of Cancer don’t leave it up to them to go for help, stay on them, make them go, set up their appointments and go with them. People become scared at the very thought of Cancer and many like my husband ignore it hoping the symptoms will go away. Don’t allow someone you love to die never knowing that you may have been able to do something that may have saved their life.

  3. Early detection is a MUST. Any combination of these symptoms should be checked out quickly.
