Anyone have Acinar Pancreas Cancer?

Posted by thawk32 @thawk32, Jan 16 7:31pm

I looking to see if anyone has been diagnosed with Acinar cell pancreas cancer. My biopsy from Dana Faber in Boston had my cancer type Neuroendocrine/Acinar. The Acinar cancer is very rare.
I was hoping to connect with someone that has experience with Acinar cell cancer of the pancreas.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Support Group.

I met with my oncologist today and cleared up the confusion. My cancer is Acinar Pancreas Cancer. I thought I had a combo along with Neuroendocrine.

Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) of the pancreas is a rare, malignant neoplasm that accounts for 1%-2% of all pancreatic neoplasms [1]. Acinar cells are the functional exocrine units of the pancreas and the carcinoma arises from malignant transformation of these cells.
If anyone has this cancer type please reach out. Thanks

No mine was a neuroendocrine carcinoma utorial and the cysto (bladder). I wish there was something that I could tell you about this cancer that you have but the rarity of it chances are of anybody having something of that nature and maybe slim to none but you never know one of these circumstances. But one good plus that I could tell you is that we just heard the other day that people have been being approved for Long haul covid now we don't know if it's going to be a temporary disability or if it's going to turn into a long disability however they do that I'm not sure but here's looking up
