Pancreatic cancer is fortunately relatively rare, but this dangerous condition can be misdiagnosed as a mental condition in its early stages. Psychological symptoms similar to depression are common (including suicidal symptoms), leading to possible misdiagnoses of depression. Patients also often have difficulty sleeping leading to a misdiagnosis of insomnia (particularly with difficulty falling asleep), or some sleeping disorder, including the revere symptoms of excessive sleeping (hypersomnia).
