Pancreatic Cancer Sign #2: Jaundice

Take a look at a person’s skin and you can often get a rough gauge of their overall health. Yellow skin and eyes, also known as jaundice, is a sign that you might have pancreatic cancer, as well as some other conditions.

The yellowness is caused by the presence of a substance called bilirubin. Bilirubin is yellow itself and is usually removed from the body by bile. Pancreatic cancer can block the bile duct, preventing the breakdown of bilirubin, hence resulting in a yellow appearance.
