my mom had an ultrasound done last week. doctor was she had a horrendous amount of stones in her bladder. in the ultrasound showed black specs in her pancreas. he told my mom that its nothing to worry about for now. for some reason i am afraid that these black specs are NOT normal. my uncle (her brother) died 4 years ago of pancreatic cancer; and i am so scared that she might have something.

they live in mexico, nowhere near a city just close to towns; where i think arent skilled enough. i may sound too pessimistic but i am scared. i dont know if i should even make that judgement call but that does not sound like a healthy pancreas.

please help me. if you also know what black specs in an ultrasound mean. i cant think properly and im confused.
