Dilated pancreatic duct

Posted by catt8722 @catt8722, Mar 6 5:42am

I recently had a EUS. The result is a 3mm dilation in the distal end of the pancreatic duct. A fatty liver and a cyst on my right kidney. I was scheduled for a CT Scan but my insurance company has not approved the test. I am very scared. What is so confusing to me is that. I had the CT a year ago last month. Everything was normal. Was anyone diagnosed with this? I have been reading about this. It can be pancreatitis or cancer.

@catt8722 I can imagine that you're worried after the results of the endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) showed dilation in the distal end of the pancreatic duct, a fatty liver and a cyst on your kidney, especially since a CT scan a year ago showed nothing abnormal. Perhaps this is good news and they caught things early. I'm tagging @christina315 and @2011panc on this discussion too as they may have similar experiences to share.

Catt, what symptoms did you have that led to your getting the EUS?

@catt8722 Unfortunately for you, I have had none of the issues you have mentioned. I do have a cyst in my lower left quadrant that we are watching, but it is closest to my ovary. From watching family members with fatty liver, I am grateful not to have to deal with that. I hope you find answers and reassurance soon. Blessings to you.
