Yesterday I had an ultrasound for another reason and during the scan they they found a cyst on my pancreas and spleen. They are sending me for a MRI to see it more clearly. My doctor did a full work up on my pancreas and other blood test and said all my blood work was normal. I’m 34 years old and otherwise in great health. I originally went to the doctors because I was having left upper abdominal aching very sporadically over the last 4 years. Felt muscular but I wanted to be sure. He said it’s not related to this new find and they found the cyst accidenly. He told me not to lose sleep, they really believe this is a benign cyst but they want to be 100%. Should I be worried? What are the chances this is cancer?
