.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.
