Pancreatic cancer might obstruct the bile duct, thus causing the jaundice.

  1. Extreme tiredness
  2. Fatigue
  3. Fever
  4. Weight loss
  5. Change in bowel habit
  6. White patches inside mouth or white spots on tongue
  7. Sore that do not heal

  10. Indigestion or troubled swallowing
  11. Recent change in wart or mole
