    i know that it is a pretty rare disease but it is very aggressive. what other symptoms are you having? i wouldn't google your symptoms if you tend to be more anxiety and hypochondria. google is not your friend and will not help you. bloating after you eat is a common symptom of so many diseases most benign.

    all I know is that if your urine becomes dark or stools clay colour these are common signs. I would not even think of PC just because u have bloating, any concerns go and see a dr.

    Symptoms of Chronic Pancreatitis and Pancreatic cancer are probably same if u google it.

    My Doctor told me that if person loses his weight very rapidly and is diagnosed with Jaundice plus he gets dark urine with very smelly stool chances are that he may get pancreatic cancer. I have Chronic Pancreatitis from 2 years.

    Go for CA 19-9 test.. CEA test these are tumour markers. Ur doubts will domewhat get clear

    The problem with info on the internet is while it can be helpful it can also cause anxiety. Going to see a doctor, with a list of symptoms, how long you have had them including frequency is the best starting point.

    For example, I have pancreatitis and have very similar symptoms to my late mother who had stomach cancer. I wasn't sure I wanted to know. After I decided to mention the symptoms and had investigations the diagnosis was hiatus hernia, ulcers and oesophagitis, all manageable and I have peace of mind. It is worth getting your symptoms checked out. Best wishes.
