Symptoms

Most common symptoms with which it may present are jaundice, pain in upper abdomen or back, unexplained weight loss, vomiting, loss of appetite, light colored stools, dark colored urine, etc.

Investigations

Endoscopic ultrasound and biopsy help in confirmation of diagnosis, whereas, imaging tests (CT/MRI/PET) are required to stage the disease.

Staging

T Staging

T staging describes the locoregional extent of the tumor. It may be T1 to T4 depending on size of tumor and involvement of surrounding structures.

N and M Staging

N is the nodal staging that may be N0 or N1 depending on the involvement of regional lymph nodes involved by tumor. And M is the metastatic staging that can be M0 or M1 depending on the presence of distant tumor spread.

Treatment

Resectability based on Extent of Tumor

Based on the staging discussed above, the pancreatic cancer may be resectable, borderline resectable, or unresectable. It depends on the involvement of nearby structures by the tumor, as discussed below.

Treatment of Localised and Locally Advanced Disease

Based on the resectability of localised and locally advanced disease, treatment decision is taken as shown in the following infographic.
