    Hi Terry were you having any kind of symptoms to have 4 ct scans done?

    Yes I definitely think so. They use CAT scans to look for cancer and considering you have had 4 of them, very likely there is no tumor. When my uncle had pancreatic cancer, his blood tests ran abnormal as he was progressed into the disease.

    CAT scans are often used to detect cancer.   They are very accurate.    Some blood tests are used to detect cancer markers. CA 125 detects ovarian tumours and there is anotther one to detect pancreatic cancer.    What symptoms do you have?

    Ct scans do look for cancer but ask for a ultrasound also are you having pain in certain areas?
