My Dad is worried about PC because of some family history etc... His doctor is not too worried about it, but he has yearly scans/tumor markers because they are following some cysts in his pancreas.

He has had quite a bit of weight loss and decrease in strength over the past 6 months. It is complicated because he has other reasons for this that I wont get into now, but let's say he has a lot of medical problems.

But sometimes this really worries me.... It seems so easy sometimes to minimize changes, especially when your doctors are pre-occupied with your other problems. He even had an EUS this year that was pretty good, so that should be reassuring, right?

Did any of you start just with weight loss/muscle loss for months.... and no other symptoms?
