Hello. I am in the US but desperate for any information I can get.
My mother had her first attack of pain and elevated liver enzymes in June. They did a ct scan and MRI and said it was pancreatitis. She was in hospital for about a week. Right before she got dismissed she was told she had a 3.65cm cyst on the tail. She had another attack a few weeks later that saw her back in the hospital, and another in September. Both times they did testing and both times the cyst stayed the same size. The doctor was not willing to remove it until it got larger than 6cm, and she got cleared until February 22nd.
First of January, she started having serious pain again and went to see her primary. He ordered labs and a ct scan. Labs came back normal but the doctor said it was cancer because the tail was swollen. No mention of the cyst.
She sees a oncologist Wednesday? Has anyone had this happen and it just be cp? I'm so lost on how he was able to jump to that conclusion after the other doctor cleared her.
