Jaundice Definition and Symptoms

Jaundice is a yellowing of the skin or eyes. The yellow color is a product of too much bilirubin (a product of red blood cells). This is often a sign that there is a problem with the liver or pancreas. Symptoms of jaundice include yellow skin and the white part of the eye, yellowing inside the mouth, dark urine, and pale stool.
