How to show ion-menu-button or ion-back-button based on the sorce page?

I have a side menu app done with Ionic4.
PageX is reachable both from the side menu and some pages of the app.

I’d like to show in this page (PageX), a header with the button:


if I reached the page from the side menu.

I’d like to show a header with the button:


If I reached the page from another page, not the side menu.

A solution could be to pass a parameter when I open the page.
There are smarter solutions according to you?

Thank you
