Signs And Symptoms Of Pancreatic Cancer
Deaths: An estimated 35,240 deaths are expected to occur in 2009. The death rate for pancreatic cancer has been stable since 2003 in men, but has been increasing by 0.1% per year since 1984 in women.American Cancer Society
Signs and symptoms: Cancer of the pancreas often develops without early symptoms. Symptoms may include weight loss, discomfort in the abdomen, and occasionally glucose intolerance (high blood glucose levels).
Tumors that develop near the common bile duct may cause a blockage that leads to jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes due to pigment accumulation). Sometimes this symptom allows the tumor to be diagnosed at an early stage.
Pancreatic cancer rates are slightly higher in men than in women. A family history of pancreatic cancer also increases risk. Though evidence is still accumulating, consumption of red meat may increase risk and physical activity may decrease risk.

Signs and symptoms: Early stage colorectal cancer does not usually have symptoms; therefore, screening is necessary to detect colorectal cancer in its early stages. Advanced disease may cause rectal bleeding, blood in the stool, a change in bowel habits, and cramping pain in the lower abdomen.
In some cases, blood loss from the cancer leads to anemia (low red blood cells), causing symptoms such as weakness and excessive fatigue.
