I am not a doctor, but it is my undersatnding that phlebitis (or swollen
legs) is one of the more common symptoms of pancreatic cancer.

Very common, as the adenocarcinomas in particular, tend to promote
thrombosis.  Sometimes the first sign of malignancy is a series of
episodes of otherwise unexplained thrombophebitis.  Treatment is often
with heparin...not all respond to cancer-related thrombosis with
coumadin...  H2
