Results of CT Scan/pancreas

Hi all.

I went thru a CT of the pancreas a few days ago. They thought there was a mass on the pancreas.

I spoke to my primary today and she said it looked like a cyst is on the pancreas. Now I did have pancreatitis a few years back. She said that if in fact it was a cyst then normally nothing is done.

So it was recommended that I go thru an Ultrasound guided biopsy to be on the safe side.

I am in the process of setting things up now.

Does anyone know anything about this type of cyst? Is is something to be checked every so often to make sure there are no changes? I would appreciate any input on this.

Thanks for listening.

Hi! I also had a cyst on my pancreas. Actually I had "too many to count". At least that's what the report said on the CT Scan. They were psuedocysts that I developed after a severe case of acute pancreatitis. They drained the biggest ones via ultrasound guided aspiration, but unfortunately mine reoccured and just kept getting bigger. I eventually had to have surgery to remove them. But before the surgery they just kept repeating ultrasounds and CT scans to keep an eye on the cysts.

Re: Results of CT Scan/pancreas

Thanks for the input. It looks like I do have pseudocysts. Looking into having an ultrasound guided biopsy just to be on the safe side. We are getting some old medical records befroe we proceed. Then will decide what to do. Will keep you posted.

Thanks again.
