No other symptoms. No diarrhea, no vomiting, no fever, a little upset stomach, but not bad. Not eating like normal but still able to eat toast and yogurt, and fruit. I had stir fry yesterday, and it was ok. And I was referring to pancreatic cancer, when I said PC.

Brief Answer:
Not likely pancreatic cancer, but if not better consider ruling it out.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for the follow-up question.
Thank you for the clarification. Pancreatic cancer usually starts with the symptom of body itching and jaundice. also it has other symptoms like abdominal pain (often described as vague abdominal discomfort or dull, deep upper abdominal pain localized to tumor level); weight loss > 10 lbs (4.5 kg); jaundice; back pain; vomiting; indigestion; diabetes mellitus, ect.

The most important thing now is to finish the treatment for the stomach and if not better by the end of it, then consider doing further exams.
The symptoms you are describing do not give me any red flags or anything to suggest pancreatic cancer.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need any more clarifications. Otherwise please kindly close and rate the answer.

Regards,
Dr. Papaqako
