If you look at the biographies I think you will find the majority of people were misdiagnosed for a period of time before being a tumor being found. That is one of the resins pancreatic cancer is so difficult to treat-most people are diagnosed at stage 4. I would say this not due to multiple tests being done and that they are -, more aptly the wrong tests were done. A cat scan of abdomen with IV contrast should show anything that is there to see. If they have found something else wrong than there should be follow up cat scans as well. The cat scan certainly can't show cancer cells but I have been told when they form a tumor is when you feel pain.
