Pancreatic Cancer

Hi there everyone, I've been absolutely crushed by extreme anxiety these passed few weeks and I need some answers, the doctors aren't giving them to me. I am terrified that I might have PC and i'd greatly appreciate any input.

I am 22, male. I have dull pain in the middle of my abdomen right below my rib cage that has lasted for about 3 months now. It follows along the right side and to my back. I have light colored stool that may often float. I have indigestion and trouble eating large amounts. I have a decreased appetite and I've lost about 6 pounds.
I have had the following tests:

- x-ray of lungs (clean)
- 2 abdominal ultrasounds (clean and clean (tiny cyst on liver))
- Upper endoscopy (clean)
- bloodwork does not indicate anything

I have requested a CT scan but my GI and ER doctors both refused, saying that they would not be necessary as the ultrasound came up clean. I'm just scared because i've heard that ultrasounds don't always pick up everything... What do you guys think?
I have even started to itch for the past three days.
Help ,
Matt
