my father was diagnosed with 2 IPMNs in the pancreatic head, but the doctors did a whipple 1 week ago only because his CA 19.9 tumormarker shot up from 100 in January to 12.000 to 20.000 in September 2012 - but now found that there was no malignant tumor but 2 benign cysts in the pancreatic head. All other sources for the elevation of the tumormarker CA 19.9 were excluded (colon, stomach, gall, lung, thyroid) the CA 19.9 is at 12.000. (He had colon and prostate cancer before and was cured) Does anyone have a similar experience with such highly elevated CA 19.9? Thanks for sharing! Yvonne
