Hi im 36 years old and had been in the ER 2x for abdominal pain, all my labs were normal including amylase, lipase, liver enzymes and CBC. My doctor ordered a CT scan with IV contrast which showed a CBD size of 6 mm with distal CBD dilation at 9 mm near the pancreatic head. No stones found on ct and ultrasound. My gastroenterologist ordered for CA-19-9 and CEA to check for pancreatic cancer which were all normal. MRCP was done and revealed a prominent CBD at 6mm and a 7 mm dilatation of the dital CBD, pancreas normal and all other structures. My gastro also ordered a HIDA scan with CCK which is pending. Now should I be concered about this dilated CBD at this point? Should I be concerned for pancreatic cancer? I am pain free for 2 months now. Thanks!
