How pancreatic cancer is diagnosed

Usually people begin by seeing their family doctor (GP) when they develop symptoms. It can be difficult for a GP to diagnose pancreatic cancer as the symptoms may be vague and can be caused by other conditions. However, your GP will normally look at your eyes and the colour of your skin to detect any jaundice, test your urine for bile and take a blood sample if needed. Your doctor may also examine your abdomen to feel for any swelling in the area of the liver. After this, further tests or x-rays may be arranged. Your GP will refer you to hospital for these tests and for specialist advice and treatment.

At the hospital, the doctor will take your medical history before doing a physical examination. You may have a blood test and a chest x-ray to check your general health.
