Tumors of the head of the pancreas can compress the common bile duct embedded in its posterior surface leading to painless jaundice (yellowing of the skin, sclera of the eyes, and mucous membranes) accompanied by swelling of the gallbladder.

The first major lymph nodes to which cancer of the pancreas will metastasize are the celiac nodes (group of pre-aortic nodes).
