and health history, rather than symptoms, she noted. "But we screen people for pancreatic cancer based on how they feel," she said. "And by the time they feel sick, it's too late."

Lichtenfeld, however, says it's "a bit optimistic" to suggest that current technologies, such as ultrasound, can diagnose pancreatic cancer early enough to make a difference. Another cancer with virtually no symptoms in its earlier stages -- ovarian cancer -- is not often found with ultrasound, he noted.

But "we're probably not far away" from the advanced screening techniques mentioned in the study, he said.
