Jaundice is a symptom associated with a fair number of diseases when the skin and eyes start developing a yellow shade, your body might be crying out for some medical attention.
Jaundice is more often than not linked with pancreatic malignancy. It is all about excessive bilirubin.
When bilirubin accumulates in the body due to the tumor hindering the release of excessive bile from the body the liver, in turn, fails to push out the processed bilirubin (bile) through the bile duct, subsequently, the eyes and skin develop a yellow color.
The Jaundice becomes worse when the growth on the pancreas spreads into the liver, hence jaundice can be seen in patients during the early and late stages of pancreatic tumor.
