This case involves a 60-year-old female patient in Illinois who had a history of pancreatic cancer that had gone into remission some time before the incident in question. The patient presented to her general practice physician with complaints of generalized stomach pain. Despite her previous history of pancreatic cancer, she was treated conservatively with prescription nausea and pain medication. Nevertheless, she soon developed symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea and was referred to a gastroenterologist. The gastroenterologist performed a colonoscopy, however no conclusive results were obtained. Her symptoms persisted and she began to lose weight, however despite multiple visits to her family doctor in the ensuing time nothing further was done. It was eventually discovered that she had developed a new tumor in her pancreas which had spread to her liver.
