i dont know how i found this place, or how to know if i receive a message back, so hopefully someone will respond while i still have the page up. my sister is in the hospital at the moment and was told that she has a tumor on her pancreas. apparently they will run tests on monday to find out if it is cancer. i am lost, and confused, and dont understand how they (doctors) can tell you something like that (having a tumor) and then make you wait all weekend long, with the fears of the unkown. i guess i would like to know if that is normal, shouldnt they be finding out ASAP? and how likely is it to not be cancerous? thanks for the help
