Was that really necessary?

I am asking if anyone here was initially told they had pancreatic cancer, but in fact they had a bile duct or ampullary cancer. Maybe they had a vague path diagnosis like my mom did (?doesn't pancreatobiliary potentially encompass either diagnoses?).

I'd appreciate if anyone could tell me if they presented with diffuse disease like my mom, or did all of you with biliary cancer diagnoses present with obstruction symptoms/strictures/elevated bilirubins?

thank you for your help. I have no one else to ask, so I would really appreciate any input that is thoughtful.
