3. Pancreatic Cancer

Although most of the causes of jaundice are related to the liver, the pancreas can also be a culprit. That's because problems with this organ can block the bile duct, leading to jaundice. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most common types of cancer for both men and women, and it has a very poor prognosis overall. Early treatment can increase the survival rate, which is why it is important to talk to your doctor at the first sign of any symptoms. Together, you can determine the best treatment options to manage your cancer and reduce symptoms.
