Hi Vivian Sabucdalao, Good day! The MRI findings are very clear. You have a cyst casing obstruction of he pancreatic duct causing he secondary changes. This causes pain in the upper abdomen. ERCP helps to delineate the exact course and cause so it is advisable to undergo one. This can help to put in stent if the Doctor feels is as a must. Thanks God for the biliary system is unaffected.
