Brief Answer:
Probably not

Detailed Answer:
Hi Thanks for writing in

Having gone through the attachments I find she has no diabetes and you mentioned she has diabetes since 5 years

Keeping aside Cystadenoma of pancreas are the most common benign tumpors of pancreas

Usually with very good prognosis post resection

Except that she has an incisional hernia she should have no morbidity

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of concern

I have a question. My mother who is 69 yrs old had some spotting, went into the doctor and had an ultra sound done. The results are - a mass the size of a pear on her ovary and her Endometrial stripe thickness is 25 mm. The endometrium is thickened, irregular and has cystic changes. The rt ovary is abnormal it has a large complex cystic mass. It demonstrates thick internal septations and solid mural nodules suspicious for cystadenoma or cystandenocarcinoma. We have her schedule for a total hysterectomy in 2 weeks ( is this too long to wait?). The doctor said that there is a 50/50 chance it could be cancer, and is leaning towards the cancer. what are your thoughts of her having Ovarian Cancer or it being benign? She is a non smoker - smoked for 20 yrs (in her younger years)... She is healthy otherwise.

I've been having symptoms of pain for 4 years. Last week I had an ultrasound and they found spots on my Pancreas. They've taken blood tests and one of the doctors said he doesn't think I have Pancreatitis, but they're waiting for results from other tests. I have been feeling very weak lately and have lost 12-15kg in 3 months without intending to. Please tell me if you have any clue to what's wrong?
