Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through the medical history of your sister and understood your concerns.

To my opinion, it should be determined first the nature of the sack. Can you please provide the reports of upper endoscopy she did so I can analyze myself.

EUS endoscopic ultrasound is recommended to determine the final diagnosis.

Brief Answer:
Looking forward to have the EUS results in...

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Ok then, EUS = endoscopic ultrasound will use a scope entering from esophagus to the stomach, where the fluid sack is located. A piece of tissue is be taken to run biopsy to determine the nature of sack.

Let me know the results please!
