Caption: Jaundiced eye. Close up of jaundiced eye in a man suffering from pancreatic cancer. The cornea of the eye (usually white) is tinged with yellow pigment. The surrounding skin is also slightly yellow. Jaundice is caused by the accumulation of the yellow - brown pigment bilirubin in the blood. In this case the jaundice may be caused by a tumour in the pancreas obstructing the gall bladder or the bile duct. Obstructive jaundice is associated with dark urine and pale faeces. The most common symptom of pancreatic cancer is pain in the upper abdomen. Treatment may include radio- therapy and/or surgical removal of the tumour.
