It wouldn't hurt for you to see another doctor and get a second opinion. 2007 I went to the ER my doctor thought I had a bleeding ulcer it turn out to be an acute Pancreas attack after a week in the hospital they said stop smoking and drinking (I never smoked or drank). 2008 I got diabetes and was put on insulin and told what to eat but I couldn't get my sugar #'s down(I also had good eating habits) than I got jaundice had and ERCP they found a 3.5 tumor on the head of my pancreas. I change hospital and doctors went to Mass General in Boston for the Whipple procedure. The good news is I'm doing pretty good since the surgery the diabetes has improved I've been slowly cutting back the insulin and my liver is fine. The bad news is it met to lymph nodules so if you feel unsure trust your gut feeling and best wishes.
