.Two years ago I was involverd in a serious motorcycle accident.  Three of the many injuries I had were a broken pelvis, ruptured bladder and two fractured vertebrae.  I have had many ct scans since.  A year ago I had a ct scan of my back prior to another surgery.  Found on the scan was a small mark on my pancreas that my PCP said did not look worrisome but we'll keep an eye on it.  Now a year later that spot has grown to 5 cm.  I have no symptoms what so ever.  Dr. is scheduling a FNA biopsy.  How concerned should I be that it is cancerous.  Going nuts not knowing.  I am a 57 yo male.
