A friend's husband has been diagnoised with an neuroedocrine tumor at the head of pancreas. It is 1.7cm in size. The first doctor said they would just watch and see if it grows. Second opinion said take it out.They now are getting a third opinion and more tests are being ran and are still waiting on results on this doctors opinion. Can anybody share any information on this type of tumor and what decision they made? Is it really possible that this type of tumor and sit there and never grow larger or cause any problems? The whipple procedure has been mentioned. Thank You in advance!
