Done blood test revealing cardiac panel, tumor marking. New finding of pancreatic lipomatosis. Help?

I just uploaded the results of my latest blood test: cardiac panel, thyroid panel and tumor markers (female); breast , whole abdomen and transrectal ultrasound results and urinalysis results of tests taken just last month. There are a lot of issues there inclusive of the new finding of pancreatic lipomatosis . It feels overwhelming and was wondering if you can give an idea of how I can tackle my health issues in principle from one step to another. A broad strokes outline of what I can do to work to tackle these issues in an optimal manner is what I am asking for.

Hello and welcome to HCM

I would be able to help you better if you post your blood test report, cardiac panel, thyroid panel, tumor marker panel, urinalysis and ultrasound abdomen.
As far as I can understand, the abdominal ultrasound gives an impression of pancreatic lipomatosis.
In general lipomatosis is a rare condition characterised by replacement of normal tissue/ organ by adipose tissue (fat tissue).
Lipomatosis is a degnerative condition the cause of hich is not known. It causes degeneration of the organ and a decrease in the functional ability of the organ.
Further you have to discuss it with your doctor preferably a gastroenterologist.

Thanks and take care
