Indeterminant cystic lesion in the pancreas....where to go from here
My very close friend recently had a Prenuvo scan, which is a comprehensive whole body scan. There was one "important finding" on the lengthy report:
"There is a lesion located in the uncinate process of your pancreas. The lesion measured 1.3cm in diameter. This finding by imaging is indeterminant. An indeterminant cystic lesion of the pancreas can potentially be a benign or a malignant lesion."
He recently mentioned that he has started having some pain in that area (he just got the report today).
In the interest of time being of the essence, should it be a malignancy, what is the advice here on next steps? This board is full of such wonderful people who know the ropes and have been invaluable to me previously on a different cancer. Please share your hard earned wisdom once more.
We reside in the Bay Area and have access to Stanford and UCSF. Trying not to put the cart before the horse but want to work ahead to have a plan of action, if need be.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for helping us know what to do next,
