Re: pancreatitis with a cyst and a stone or calcification

Hi there, I have chronic mild pancreatitis and have had tests for 4 yrs. After several EUS they then said they saw an incomplete divisum. Im confused how the dr has gotten this confused with a stone? A divisum means one of your branches in your pancreas is broken off, hence not connected with the rest so essentailly the juices do not run through this part. I am tested each yr not only because of the pancreatis but because my dad had pancreatic cancer-and so I am very at risk.

It appears they biopsied your cyst? I dont want to alarm you, but did they confirm its not cancer? I would get the whipple and not risk this cyst....ESPECIALLY if it has pre cancer cells-you do NOT want to risk this growing
