Pancreas Cancer

A recent ultrasound indicates a solid mass measuring 3.8 x 4.4 cm in the tail region of my pancreas. It was not detected 1 year ago. If this mass turns out to be a cancerous tumor, what would the chances be of removing it by laparoscopic surgery? Factor in the fact that I am a severe type A hemophiliac. Worth the effort, or would chemo be my best bet? Male, 67, HIV and Hep C positive, also. Thank you for any information.
