Hi I had a distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy 5 weeks ago. I had a mucinous cystic neoplasm about the size of an apple on the tail of my pancreas. A small part of the cyst had turned cancerous. My surgeon said I didn't need any further treatment. The pathology report stated that the cancer was 12mm with foci of lymphovascular invasion but no peri neural invasion. 16 lymph nodes were benign. I am worried about the lvi and have made an appointment with an oncologist. I wanted to know if anyone had experience of this type of pancreatic cyst having turned cancerous and whether they had further treatment. I am 51 with a young daughter and want to make sure I do everything I can. Thanks
