One of the most common signs of this cancer is seeing jaundice. If you have yellowing on your skin or eyes that is jaundice. The American Cancer Society states that just about every case with this kind of cancer starts with this symptom. This happens when bilirubin builds up (that is the subtance created inside your liver). It is generally expelled from the liver through bile but when those bile ducts are blocked, it gets built up throughout the body. Generally, the cancer will begin at the top of your pancreas. When it spread, it goes into the liver and creates jaundice.
