Well I heard from my Gastrolologist nurse today. They ordered a MRI Protocol of the cyst on my Pancreas, Whatever that means. ( Because of the cyst that showed up on my CT Scan of the abdomen. ) Getting kind of nervous.

Hello @faithann64,

This sounds like the appropriate next step in discovering more about this cyst. MRIs tend to give more info than CT scans do and don't use radiation. After your MRI results come back your doctor should be able to give you more information and decide on the next step.

I've had MRIs for my pancreatic cysts for several years now. So far, there have not been significant changes. I hope that your MRI works out well for you.

Has your MRI been scheduled yet?

Teresa is saying exactly what I would say. Gary has MRIs every 6 mo. It is a very good idea to watch cysts. Hope you have a clean one. If you have never had an MRI before, read about it on Mayo. It's not a big deal to do..the results are definitely worth it! I have stage 4…end stage…liver disease. I get them every 6 mo. too. I have a cyst on my liver they watch. Don't be too worried…you are amongst friends!
And in good hands….
