Digestive Disorders

Pancreatic Cancer

02/28/2010

Question:

I have had bad bouts with burping rotten eggs then vomiting and then dirrhea. At first the episodes were maybe once every two months, but it has been about 7 months since this started and now this happens every week. This puts me down for a while as I have a Chiari Malformation to deal with also. My family has a history of pancreatic cancer and I am told that this may also be pancreatic cancer. Is that possible?

Answer:

This sounds more like reflux or irratible bowel syndrome. This is not how pancreas cancer presents. I would suggest an appointment with a GI doctor for further evaluation.
