Pancreatic cancer is a malignant tumor with extremely high degree of harm, and pancreatic cancer will have different signs at different periods. Although pancreatic cancer is difficult to be diagnosed early, if you have a certain understanding of the signs of pancreatic cancer, it is conducive to self-examination, and then seek medical treatment as soon as possible to buy time for treatment
The signs of pancreatic cancer are mainly manifested in the following five aspects. If you find more than two symptoms in your body, you must pay attention to them and go to the hospital as soon as possible to rule out pancreatic cancer:
Pancreatic Cancer Classic Sign 1
Upper abdominal discomfort and hidden pain Upper abdominal discomfort and hidden pain is the most common first manifestation of advanced pancreatic cancer, but the abdominal pain and the location of the abdominal pain are unclear and the scale is wider. The typical parts are the mid-upper abdomen and the left quarter ribs, which can radiate to the back, front chest, and right shoulder blades. Abdominal pain can be manifested as blunt pain, severe tenderness, biting pain, etc., which are mostly persistent and can be exacerbated after a meal.
Pancreatic Cancer Classic Sign II
Jaundice Jaundice is a relatively common manifestation of advanced pancreatic cancer. Many patients with advanced pancreatic cancer will have jaundice, and occasionally some patients with early pancreatic cancer will also have this performance. Obstructive jaundice is the most prominent manifestation of pancreatic head cancer, with an incidence of more than 90%. The early pancreatic body and pancreatic tail may not have jaundice. Jaundice is generally persistent and progressively deepens. When it is completely obstructed, it can be clay-colored, and the skin can be brown or bronze with pruritus.
Pancreatic Cancer Classic Sign Three
Weight loss Patients with pancreatic cancer will also have significant weight loss performance. When pancreatic cancer develops to an advanced stage, patients will have a relatively obvious appearance of wasting. In general, 90% of patients have wasting, which is characterized by rapid development, lack of pancreatic bile, poor digestion and absorption function, poor appetite, sleep, and heavy burden And the direct effect of cancer cells.
Pancreatic Cancer Classic Sign Four
Fever At least 10% of patients have fever during the course of the disease. The advanced clinical manifestations of pancreatic cancer may be low fever, high fever, intermittent fever or irregular fever. The cause may be related to the heat source released by the cancer cells themselves or secondary biliary tract infections. If the fever continues, the death will be accelerated.
Pancreatic cancer classic signs five
Gastrointestinal symptoms Symptoms of the digestive tract mainly include loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, or gastrointestinal bleeding.
In addition, in the short term, if diarrhea or diabetes suddenly worsen, you should also be alert to pancreatic cancer. The prognosis of pancreatic cancer is extremely poor, and the situation is fierce. You should start from prevention, eat more fruits and vegetables, participate in appropriate sports, develop a regular life and rest, and eat some natural anti-cancer foods. For example, the modern Chinese medicine ginsenoside Rh2, which is the monomer component of ginsenoside with the strongest antitumor activity and the most essential component of ginseng, can effectively inhibit the growth and reproduction of cancer cells and is particularly sensitive to pancreatic cancer.
The above are the five classic signs of pancreatic cancer introduced to you. It is worth noting that not all patients will have obvious signs. The early symptoms of pancreatic cancer are not obvious. Many patients are in the middle and late stages when they go to the hospital for treatment . Therefore, it is recommended that patients with a family medical history and related organ diseases should pay attention to regular medical examinations and seek medical treatment as soon as they find abnormalities, so that early detection and treatment can better protect our health.
