Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.
The common age group for pancreatic tumour diagnosis is 60-79 years.
The symptoms of pancreatic tumour in pregancy is because of intra hepatic cholestasis of pregancy that is due to the excess of harmones.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
