Customer Question
Been feeling ill for months...
Been feeling ill for months. I can’t function physically anymore. Had so many tests done
Blood work is ok except transferrin saturation which is low.
I have pale stool, nausea, weakness, no appetite
My question is can 2 ct scans 5 months apart and an mri miss pancreatic cancer ?
Both scans with contrast IV
Also they saw my spleen is longer than usual but thin and since it remained at 14,4 cm they say it’s my normal size
Im scared because of my symptoms that it’s pancreatic cancer even with the scans

I am a cancer doctor

those scans would not miss pancreatic cancer

you would not have pancreatic cancer.

have you had blood testing to check for viral infections? mononucleosis which can cause long term fatigue at your age?

Yeah. Nothing was found
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Was worried because it was not a specific pancreatic protocol for either tests
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
all the other symptoms which seem to be like pancreatic issues
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

if you got a thin slice pancreatic CT or MRI scan, it would also show no cancer there.

are you loosing weight?

my patients with pancreatic cancer loose weight, can't eat,

light brown stools are normal.

nausea can be from excessive stomach acid, or excessive anxiety symptoms can cause nausea.

No but my pain is on the left under rib cage
It’s not where my stomach is
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

left side under the rib cage is where your stomach is

that is where the food goes to after you eat it.

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

medications like zantac, prilosec, nexium can help decrease stomach acid symptoms.

and help decrease nausea and help calm down your stomach.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
