Pancreatic Cancer

This is one of the most undiagnosed types of cancer out there. Doctors will tell you that "simple blood tests" will catch it. I have seen two cases of
people in Stage 4 (End Stage Pancreatic Cancer) that doctors did not catch.
And "simple blood tests" did not catch it contrary to the pronouncements of the medical profession.
Unexplained weight loss (I know one individual that went from 214 pounds to 138 due to Pancreatic Cancer in a matter of months) Jaundice and Pain in the back is also common with this type of cancer. It has one of the lowest survival rates (less than 5 percent)
of any type cancer and often spreads to liver, adrenal glands etc. Most experts say about one year is the maximum life expectancy after being diagnosed and often it is much less than that.
