Hello my name is Jennifer I am 51 years old. I went for a Thoracic spine MRI a week and a half ago. Ordered by my pain management doctor. Had MRI on a Thurs, went to him on the following Mon. I was told I had a 18 x 27 mm cyst on the tail of my pancreas, a renal nodule and some gallstones. I went to my Gastro doctor yesterday, I was crying and in a panicked state. He explained these cysts are usually found acidentally, he thinks it is a benign cyst and it is in a good place if it needs to be removed because the tail is a better spot for removal. I just have so many questions and my doctor is wonderful, but he has other patients too. He took blood work to check for some sort of chemical that would show cancer or something that would show a problem. He gave me a script for the MRI and said it was a "routine" under the priority column. My question is how do i handle this I am scared to death. If the radiologist thought it was cancer would he have called my pain management doc right away? instead of just sending it over? please I need advice
