My husband was suspicious for abnormality in the pancreas but they could not conclude because the spot was SO small that they could not with 100% certainty determine what the problem was (he was Type II Diabetic so they were watching his AiC numbers and these were starting to fluctuate dramatically (this was in March of 2010, ran some more tests due to weight loss (not drastic weight loss but my husband was trying to lose weight -- so we did not connect the weight loss to anything significant) He became jaundiced in July of 2010 so they went in to do an ERCP, again inclusive for PC but decided to do the whipple to conclude, dx after whipple in August of 2010.
