I have had intermittent mid back pressure that I have
As CT was normal it can't be pancreatic cancer.
Welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service.
I have gone through your query in details.
Your problem seems to be due to dyspepsia or incomplete digestion of food. Our gastrointestinal tract has a forward propulsive movement (peristalsis) that moves the food material forward as it is digested, absorbed and finally expelled as faeces.
If somehow this movement gets hampered, Degradation of undigested food in the intestines by the intestinal bacteria would lead to the excess gas formation. This excessive gas compresses the nerves passing through the intestines causing pain.
All I would suggest you is to take light easily digestible food for a few days (preferably vegetarian) along with activated charcoal tablets.
With normal CT it's not likely to be carcinoma.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
