Question by rita: What’s the difference between gall bladder problems and Pancreatic cancer?
are symptoms the same? Which symptoms go with one and not the other?
Answer by Chris
Cancer in the part of the pancreas known as the head can at first cause symptoms similar to gall bladder disease. An ultra sound of the gall bladder area or a cat scan of the upper abdomen will give the diagnosis. Unfortunately by the time pancreatic cancer becomes a cause of symptoms it is usually not curable whereas gall bladder disease is alleviated by removing the gall bladder(cholecystectomy). I hope this helps.
