MRI showed mass and tumor in lower part of pancreas. Is this cancer?

Hi, my name is Melody today I went for a MRI from what all the doctors were telling me that I wouldn't know anything until next week. Approx. 1 hour later my doctor called and sent me an email that he need to talk to me about my results he even left my his home number and cell number. What he told me was that they found a mass and turmor on the lower part of my pancreatic that they needed to take a bio ASAP he was sure I had Cancer and that the bio will be done on Friday morning. What do you think

Dear Melody,

A mass seen below pancreas in MRI needs to be urgently biopsied. There is a good chance of it being a malignancy. Once you take the biopsy the results will help your treating doctor to decide on further treatment plans. Biopsy is a must for it.

If your doctor is hurrying in precedures it most probably would only because he need to make sure the diagnosis as soon as possible. As some malignancies are rapidly growing.

The hurry is because he had seen many patients in the past who ended up in bad stages only because of late diagnosis.

I don't know how to alleviate your worries about the money greedy nature of doctors. Sorry.

Please contact back with further medical details for future queries like
-what are the symptoms you currently have
-why did yourdoctor take the decision to do an MRI

Thank you
