Question, My 79 year old father had a CT scan for bladder / prostate issues, it revealed possible intraductal papillary mutinous neoplasms x2. One in the head of the pancreas at either 9 or 11 mm depending on if you read the summary or the initial findings. One in the tail that is 27 mm. As an OR nurse I am extremely aware of surgical complications of pancreatic surgery- he is totally asymptomatic. After a MRI they are recommending biopsy, my question is that at 79, what is the best course of action?
