My Grandma Had A Blood Test For Cancer.?

LaToya F - With so many different kinds of cancer, each with different outlooks, it is much too soon for anyone to just consider one possibility.
It may turn out that she has some condition other than cancer.
Besides, there is no one test for cancer, but there are many, and not all are specific for one type.

Initially, pancreatic cancer tends to be silent and painless as it grows. By the time it's large enough to cause symptoms, pancreatic cancer has generally grown outside the pancreas. At this point, symptoms depend on the cancer's location within the pancreas:

Pancreatic cancer in the head of the pancreas tends to cause symptoms such as weight loss, jaundice (yellow skin), and fat in the stool, with or without abdominal pain.

Pancreatic cancer in the body or tail of the pancreas usually causes belly pain and weight loss.
