It was informative although I wished he would have mentioned that there is NO SCREENING TEST for PC and that the symptoms are often vague and mistaken for GERD, muscle strain, etc. By the time symptoms become dramatic the cancer is usually already very advanced.

Also, some people never get jaundice. My family member is stage 4 for nearly 2 years and has never been jaundice

The floating stool are also not a sure thing. It's just a difficult disease to pin down 100% of the time, so we need more money, money, money!
