Hi, I lost both previously healthy parents to PC in 2020. 5 months apart. I continued to work in our small hospitality business. I woke up vomiting the other morning and have had some stomach pain and am paranoid that I might have this cancer. Is this normal after loss?

Hi  Mandz65

Sorry to read of the loss of your parents.

It could be because of your recent loss ,but I would see your GP explain the position and ask for an ultrasound,a CA19.9 blood test,and if possible a ct scan,with such a history of pc in  your family you can’t afford to be complacent as so far there are no early warning test.be proactive not reactive.Keep on top of any symptoms.
