1 year ago, my mother went into a clinic to be examined for gall stones. The ultrasound revealed a small lump on her pancreas. Her doctor told her not to worry about the lump, no big deal, and to focus on getting her gall stones removed. When my mother asked if she should follow up on the lump after her stones were removed, she was told by her doctor that the lump was most likely a watery cyst that was very common. Seeking a 2nd opinion, she asked the surgeon who removed her stones. Her surgeon agreed with her Dr: that it was probably nothing and not to worry about it. She now has a 6cm tumor on and has started chemo, her hospital has given her 6 months. Looking back now, the report from her initial Dr. clearly says the lump is "suspicious of pancreatic neoplasm". Do we have a case?
