Is skin rash a symptom of pancreatic cancer?

My daughter has a rash that will not go away. Hydrocortisone cream does not help. At first we thought this was contact dermatitis from soap, but all that has been eliminated as a cause. Her doctor wants her to take a blood test for Pancreatic Cancer. I do not find a site that shows rashes as a symptom of pancreatic cancer. How worried should I be?
