Cyst on Pancreas?
So recently i had a CT Abdomen Pelvis w/ Contrast and they found a cystic structure to arise on the Pancreas . Said it could represent a serous/mucinous neoplasm. Anyone knows what that means ??? Thank You. ( 57 year old male.)
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Pancreatic Cancer Support Group.
Yes, Thank you.
So I had the upper endoscopy ultrasound of my Pancreas this morning of the cyst. The cyst is on the head of the pancreas. Surgeon said it's Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms. He did do a biopsy. Basically he told me will wait on results and just keep an eye on the cyst ?? Have follow up in 3 weeks. So I guess the next step is to wait on biopsy results ?
@faithann64 I appreciate the update.
Yes, waiting for the biopsy results is the thing to do right now.
Did the doctor indicate when he/she would have the results?
I would like to invite @mariouk to this conversation who has a similar experience to yours.
I look forward to hearing from you again.
No he didn't .
Has anyone have a cyst on pancreas that turned into cancer over time ? Waiting on my biopsy but if it's not cancer is there any lifestyle changes & eating habits that can help it not turning into cancer ??? Thanks
I have 2 cysts on pancreas.Dr doesn’t seem worried about it but I am
Hello and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, @rexsan20. Can you share a bit more about what was found and why your doctor isn't worried so that other members may provide support?
They may not be the kind of cysts that are harmful. I would ask my Dr
to explain further. You always should be comfortable with what your Dr. says and can always consult a new one. Do research yourself always…
I will ask my doctor about this.
There are 2 contiguous simple small cysts identified within the right hepatic lobe measuring 8 and 6 mm.
