Dad at 61, discovered to have 2cm localized at the head of pancreas
So, my dad at 61, on February 20th, during regular blood test, they found some tumor markers. After analyzing it is found out that it is from the head of pancreas.
After future scanning and testing. They found a 2cm tumor on the head, which doesn't affect around places. My dad haven't had any symptoms or anything prior of this discovery, and he still dont feel anything or have any symptoms after. He is on strict diet before the surgery.
The doctors says that this could be operable
He will go to Slovenia for Whipple procedure and future analysis.
My question is, what are the odds of all of this? How much he might live? I can't deal with this news, i know the reality of this, that his life is shorten, which nobody knows how much.
I keep reading on internet, they say the sooner it is found, which is very hard, the better the outcome.
