Dark Urine as A Sign of Pancreatic Cancer

Dark Urine as A Sign of Pancreatic Cancer

Dark urine is one of the two newly discovered symptoms of pancreatic cancer. The other symptom is excessive thirst. Being new symptoms in town means nothing much is known about them, including their prevalence.

How Early It Appears

Pancreatic cancer is one of the conditions that attack silently. In other words, it does not show red flags in its early stages. This makes me believe that dark urine and other symptoms show in the later stages of the condition.

What to Do Once You Identify It

Dark urine can also be a sign of jaundice. This is why it is best to see your healthcare provider soon enough after spotting it to know what is affecting you.

The work of a family doctor includes a wide range of clinical diversity, which requires extensive knowledge and erudition from a specialist. However, I believe that the most important thing for a family doctor is to be human because the cooperation and understanding between the doctor and the patient are crucial in ensuring successful health care. On my days off, I love being in nature. Since childhood, I have been passionate about playing chess and tennis. Whenever I have time off, I enjoy traveling around the world.
