Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Ultrasound of head of pancreas clearly shows an outgrowth .
This has invaded many parts as .
stomach ,
both curvatures.
Lymph nodes are also infiltrated as ,gastric, coeliac, mesentric and para-aortic .
Due to this outgrowth there are also infiltration in liver as there is an enlargement.
Surgery is the only an option ,so consult a board of surgeon.
God bless you , get well soon.
