Didn't the doctors in John Hopkins get some cell for biopsy? My husband had EUSFNA 2 weeks ago where they took 5 cells for biopsy and 2 days later we received the diagnosis that it is cancer. He is going for MRI with contrast tomorrow to determine if the cancer has spread and where. He is scheduled for whipple on August 15th

Don't stop, insist that they either do another endoscopic ultrasound w/fine needle aspiration and maybe they need to take more cells for the biopsy to get a conclusive diagnosis. Good luck and my prayers are with you.

Susan
