My Dad in the past 2 or so months has been to our local doctors for numerous tests. He has had a CT, MRI and a biopsy. The biopsy came back negative. They say his pancreas is calcified. However, the doctor does not want to rule out cancer, so he is sending him to a specialist at UNC Chapel Hill. Basically our doctor here "doesn't know" or isn't certain.
Dad's only symptom is pain in his upper abdomin. No jaundice, no weight loss, nothing of those sorts. He did take a CA 19-9 marker test and the levels were elevated. But again, the MRI and the biopsy found nothing.
I just cannot wrap my head around our doctor here "being confused" with the results.
He goes in tomorrow, I guess I'll find out. I don't know any professionals I can ask. So, here I am.
What does it sound like?
