Worried

A month ago I had a cat scan for follow up for a health concern ubtelTed to this concern. The doctor told me rather flippantly that the scan showed a 4 am mass on the head of my pancreas. I was shocked. My bloodwork is normal I have no symptoms . I have waited for over a month for MRI . The cat scan report stated a vague mass noted that could possibly be from contrast die and no dilation of bile duct or any concerns noted regarding pancreas. I seen a surgeon who told me not to worry . I have done nothing but worry for over a month and have terrible anxiety symptoms. Would I have pancreatic symptoms by now if it was cancer with a 4cm mass. I had an MRI 8 months ago that was clear.

Re: Worried

I've had a mass on my kidneys for years. They said it was a fat deposit.

I would listen to your surgeons advice.

Best of luck to you.
