Determining diagnosis

The structure of the cyst or mass is revealed by the determining diagnosis – CT or MRI. It can be mixed with cancer. It is necessary to carry out analyses using endoscopic USE and cyst fluid for the determining diagnosis. These analyzes include cytological studies to reveal the presence of cancer cells and biochemical studies to determine the level of cancer indicators. Analyzes can be made for hormone secreting tumors.

Treatment

Radiological and clinical examinations may be performed depending on size, structure and complaints. Or the damaged part of the pancreas or the body itself may be removed through the surgical way. These interventions are performed by the laparoscopic or open methods depending on the surgeon's choice and experience.
