Pancreas Cancer

I am a 20 year old female, relatively healthy. However, I have been having pain in the left side of my abdomen right under my left rib cage for about 6 months now. It radiates into my back and has recently become more noticeable. It feels like a dull ache in my abdomen but a sharp burning pain in my back. I am very tired all the time and do not have much of an appetite anymore. I also have fairly fatty stools that are lightly colored. I did get a CT scan about 6 months ago, which came out normal. I have been back to the doc about ever month since then to complain about the pain, but they keep sending me away saying itís anxiety or GERD. From anyone with experience with PC or pancreatic issues does this sound like I have PC or pancreas problems? I am very worried to the point where it is ruining my life. I pray for everyone with this awful disease, as even the thought of me having it makes me burst into tears. How can I 100% rule out PC? I know CT scans can miss it..thanks
