Hello, my name is Jenn i am 51 years old. I have written on here before and have always gotten very good advice. After getting a thoracic spine MRI, a cyst 2.6 cm on the tail of my pancreas was found. I went to my Gastro doc who referred me to the director of pancreatic medicine in NY where I live. He told me it was probable a IPMN cyst and was most likely benign. No MRI enhancement or ductal dilation. I was then sent for a endoscopic ultrasound, results were benign, but precancerous. So my doc wants to take it out by next year. Because eventually it prob will become cancerous. He said the Citology said the tumor marker was 1800, but not to pay attention to that it does not mean I have any sort of cancer. He said 18000 would alarm him. My head is spinning please some advice or experiences welcome
