Suggest treatment for pancreatic cancer

my mother was recently diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer. She is 69 years old and has dementia. In the past year I have had red grease floating in the toilet when I go to the bathroom. I occassionally have really bad stomach cramping and diarreah (sp?), maybe once or twice a month. I have had sore back for years...I am just worried that I may have something going on with my pancreas. I had a physical a couple months ago and all of my blood work came back normal. The physical was before my mom's diagnosis though and I am wondering if I should be concerned in light of what is happening with my mom...

Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should not worry much about pancreatic cancer.
You should get done annual health check up with ultrasound examination of abdomen and tumour markers to rule out early pancreatic malignancy.
Your present symptoms are mostly suggestive of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Stress and anxiety are the most common causes for this.
You might be having too much stress, anxiety due to your mother's situation, which is causing you all these.
So avoid stress and tension. Be relax and calm.
Get done annual health check up.
Don't worry, you will be alright.
Hope I have solved your query.
Wish you good health.
Thanks.
