Symptom #2: Nausea and Vomiting

Up to 40% of pancreatic cancer patients experience nausea and vomiting. It can occur due to reasons such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or obstruction of the bowel due to tumor growth. The reason for the vomiting should be sought out so the underlying cause can be treated to improve the patient’s quality of life.

Antiemetic (prevent vomiting) medications can also be prescribed. Drugs such as Granisetron, Ondansetron, and Metoclopramide are effective. Corticosteroids can also be used to prevent vomiting.
