This is a rare histological variant, and fortunately has a better prognosis. Treatment approaches will be similar to adenocarcinoma, but outcomes will be better in this type of cancer that originates from IPMN.

I would recommend trying to get an opinion from Hopkins, which I heard you can do remotely. Sending them the scans on CD, surgical report and pathology report. Dr. Daniel Lahru is a favorite oncologist there for PC.

If you are near any of the major sites that specialize in pancreatic cysts, they should also have the best information. Look at the locations listed on the left side of the screen at this site, in case any of them are near you:
