Pseudocysts of the pancreas

Pseudocysts of the pancreas

Cysts growing in the pancreas or inside are quite common. Most of them neither cause symptoms, nor are cancerous. The most common of these developments is pseudocyst (false cyst), a benign fluid-filled sac containing pancreatic enzymes. In the most cases these cysts are revealed accidentally during CT examination or abdominal USE for other reasons.


False cysts generally do not cause any symptoms, but in the suspected cases, detailed examination may be required to deny pre-cancerous or cancer-infected growth. Common complaints include:

  • Abdominal pains spreading to the chest and upper spine (as the organs are under pressure)
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Growth that can be felt in the upper part of the abdomen.
