blood test? pancreas leasion
I have a history of breast cancer and my mom passed away of pancreatic cancer at age 48 I did an endoscopic ultrasound because I'm at high risk and they found a 4 mm leasion on the head of my pancreas. They didn't do any blood test and just told me to come back in 3 months for an other biopsy. I don't feel good about doing nothing and I'm scared. Should they do a blood test?

Thank you

yes yes yes - my mother had a growth in her pancreas for 2 years - I forced docs to do 6 mos check ups - they kept telling me if it were cancer she'd be dead by now.... well one mos before her 6 mos checkup a ct scan found lesions in her pancreas ie localized matastasis - that was February, today she is stage 4.  Don't take no for an answer.... if it's early enough you can do gemzar chemo or retraction.
