? pancreatic cancer

noticed intermittant foamy urine had analysis done. Showed trace protein otherwise normal. Still continues but 2 urines since normal even though I have foam at times. Also developed sharp shooting pain upper Left back and sometimes in LUQ. Went to emergency room and had CT of ABD/Pelvis with contrast. Normal. I am terrified I have Pancreatic Cancer. Is this possible I am 53 year old female. Told by 1 MD I have psoriatic arthritis I think I have Fibromyalgia. But this pain is stressing me out

Hi,
How are you? Proteinuria or urine that contains an abnormal amount of protein may be seen with patients with diabetes or hypertension. Pancreatic Cancer may present with upper abdominal pain that may radiate to the back, yellowing of skin and the whites of  the eyes, loss of appetite, weight loss, depression and blood clots. It is good that the initial CT scan was normal. It is important that you discuss the results with your attending physician for proper evaluation.  Additional diagnostic tests such as endoscopic ultrasound  or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
