Welcome to the board.

Here is an excellent resource for pancreatic cysts.

http://www.pancyst.org/

Here is a good page for reviewing the screening recommendations. The surgeon who started this website was trained at Hopkins and now lives in Indiana. Maybe you could go there for an opinion, and have him give recommendations to your local docs?

Fortunately, the majority of cysts do not progress to cancer. Fortunately, yours are also very small. A local gastroenterologist should be able to work with you to monitor them over time. It is very possible your symptoms may not even be related to these cysts, so you should ask the gastroenterologist what they think.
