The pancreas can cause rashes neither the onc or derm may have much experience with dx unless they think of this. Mention to his team about checking his lipase levels and other pancreas causes of the rash.
Acinar pancreatic cancer tumors can also cause marble sized lumps under the
skin from lipase elevations and leakage.
Rashes are listed for pancreatic disease or pancreatic cancer symptoms on
knowledgable pancreatic ca websites. One of the posters here some time back
had a mom with glucagonoma that caused a nasty rash. Their dr would bring in
students to look at it because they could go a lifetime and never see it
again but helpful if they did
