Please help. My Dad just recently had an MRI for back pain and they discovered a mass on his pancreas tail and adrenal gland. The pancreas mass is quite large. They don't think it is cancer but my dad is refusing to have a biopsy done. What are the chances of a pancreatic mass not being cancerous? The doctor basically told him not to worry about it but that didn't sound right to me when he has a pancreatic mass and adrenal mass. Thank you so much for your help, it is greatly appreciated.
