Central chest pain. Had gall bladder checked. Is it this a sign of pancreatic cancer?

Been having scans and MRI for central chest pain under breastbone and also a stitch in my side which over 12 mos has become more constant . Last few weeks feel in same area is a lot of gurgling sensation whether I eat or not makes no diffference. Could this be a sign of something like pancreatic cancer ? Have had Gall Bladder checked and seems working and at least 2 ultrasounds of stomach area which hopefully would have included Pancreas although never been told specifically that the organ has been checked.

Only symptom like central chest pain is not enough to suspect pancreatic cancer. You have not mentioned your age, anyway cardiac cause of chest pain must be ruled out at an elderly age. Detailed history of pain abdomen its mode onset, duration,relation to food, relieving or aggravating factors should be carefully investigated. Pancreatic cancer may be suspected after ruling out other more possible causes. Consult your physician.
