Common Questions and Answers about Lump on pancreas

lump

Not clear on what you said - 20/28 in. lump? I would think if you had a lump this size you'd look pregnant. Your pancreas isn't big enough to support a growth that large.
Through the endoscope, the physician can see the inside of the stomach and duodenum, and inject dyes into the ducts in the biliary tree and pancreas so they can be seen on x rays. For the procedure, you will lie on your left side on an examining table in an x-ray room. You will be given medication to help numb the back of your throat and a sedative to help you relax during the exam.
Any hernias through the rectus muscle, like an umbilical hernia, usually reduce in size on lying down and increase on coughing which raises the abdominal pressure. Hiatal hernia is the sliding of the stomach into the chest cavity through the opening in the diaphram, and cannot be palpated external. Only a consultation with your primary care physician can help diagnose. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Having CT scan tomorrow on pancreas,liver,abdomen, upper GI endoscopy 26th June.Been on 12.5mg methotrexate 7 yrs, LFT results fine,slightly elevated MCV,MCH and C-reactive protein.. My symptoms sound like pancreatitis or gall bladder but I am concerned that the bc may have spread to the pancreas. I know it normally can spread to the liver,bones,lungs and occasionally brain, but wonder if it can spread to the pancreas or gall bladder? Thank you. Liz.
I have a lump that is large, probably 4in wide by 2.5 inches high, centrally located in my abdomen about 3 inches below my sternum and 2 inches above my belly button. I often feel full and uncomfortable when sitting and if I lie flat, it is easier to feel. I tried to see what organs were in that area online and saw the stomach and pancreas, so I am concerned... Do you have any idea what it could be. I am a 49 year old woman.
After I eat my heart rate feels elevated and a lump feeling in my throat. Im on a double dose of prilosec with no help. Im 27 no heart burn beside my two pregnancies. Do not get sick often Im 5'1 about 135 lbs. I feel nauseated and light headed recently under some stress. I feel my symptoms are somewhat bothering and affecting my work. Is this at all signs or symptoms of pancreatic problems?

He said it's not really tender, but that he is feeling ill in general and having pancratic pain.He has a Dr's appointment tomarrow...but he won't let anyone go with him..and he won't tell his Dr. he is drinking agin....Could the lump be related to him drinking again???My father is only 47 years old and I am so worried about him..Can pancritis be fatal???
The problem is that in the last ten days, more or less, I started feeling a lump in my throat, and I in panic, since I'm thinking the worst scenario (I have lost my father last October for pancreatic cancer, and since then, I have become a bit hypochondriac). I had my blood test 2 weeks ago, and everything was fine, but the sense of the lump is making me crazy. The Uni health center referred me to a endocrinologist, I'll go next week.
hello there`well first of all i have a large puffy painful lump on the left side of my armpit`what was the cause of it`and how can i get rid of it??????
It seems to be worse lately and I've developed a lump on my back where it is always hurting. I have constant pain under my front left rib and right next to my left shoulder blade. I'm constantly scared because it also makes it hard to breathe. My doctor doesn't find anything and I don't have the financial means to find an answer. I'm told I'm just under alot of stress.
For the past couple of months I've noticed a lump in my center upper abdomen that bulges out when I lay down or recline. It sometimes rises up and bulges out of my skin for a few seconds, then drops back down. It is not painful, even when I press on it. Today I noticed that when I lay down and press on the area, I can slightly feel it even when it isn't bulging. I've had problems with nausea the past couple of months as well.

The soreness is pretty much located right at the base of the neck on the top of my back. I dont have a lot of heartburn mostly just belching and acid reflux. I have had a little bit of trouble talking too. I suffer from anxiety and depression and wanted to know if those could be causes of this weird sensation? I recently quit smoking ciggarettes (1 Month STRONG!) after smoking pretty heavily for 2-3 years. I have smoked marijuana heavily the past 5-6 years and have quit that as well.
too many other things going on. Barretts doesn't explain the lump below my left rib, the abnormal stools or the other aches and pains. I suspect a colonoscopy is next.
Somewhere along the lines i developed this lump/mass/alien thing that developed on the outside of my rib cage, right below my left breast. The dr can feel it, its obvious when i stand up and hold my breast up....there is a lump there. Its there to the human eye, and you can feel it. Had a ct scan done......but it didnt show up. Or well, the dr didnt address it. All that was found is a cyst on my right ovary.
So i start thinking could it be a lump and since i know that on the right side its the liver and gallbladder n pancreas scare me. I havent done anything to cause this, i've had this i would say for like 2 weeks. Before that the only thing i remember is that I went through a lot of stress. Can hernias be caused by stress??? Im just very worried even though I'm in overall good health, i just hope its not my liver or anything serious.
I have been reading a few questions on the severe itching on arms I also have this problem, just wanted to comment; I have been to see 5 doctors and no one has helped me yet, next week I am on my way to a new doctor, I have had chest x-rays, blood and urine tested, biopsy on both my arms, I have been given pills, creams, I just had an MRI and they found nothing in my neck to indicate my nerves are being bothered. Soooooo Now what??? it sure is frustrating. Any comment??
i have the same kinda thing its a fair sized lump above my belly button and slight pain when pushed on and i have sharp pains around my left ribs and down that come and go but mainly around my ribs i continue to have sharp pains as if being poked with a sharp knife? its hard to explain but ive been to the dr a few times and they all say its fine and i got blood tests and they came back normal and im worried that somethings wrong and their not paying too much attention to it.
I want to thanks for replying with such helpful info re your wife. I have also read that people who start on on say sythroid may still have some symptoms but after switching to Armour they lose all symptoms. I would like to try Armour 1st. I hope my Endo is cooperative about it... Anyone else on Armour????? Or been on it ? Or switched from it to sythroid Levrox. etc...
Hi Everyone, I have not been on in a long time due to health issues with self, friends, and family; we are all lucky to be here. I plan to continue to keep you posted because I think it is important that we stay abreast of what goes on with each other post treatment. Brief recap: Did triple therapy with Incivek beginning in June of last year. Had to stop Incivek at 9.5ish weeks due to severe rash but completed the rest of treatment finishing in December of last year.

When i push on the upper portion and outside edge of my right rib cage, I can feel something move under my rib. It's not a lump, it's just a movement I feel can feel. What is this?
pain on left side,sore to touch,and redness showing through,,,check into the pancreas. theres not much on the left side,so id say bowel,pancreas issues,,,and YES ,,do have it check out and get it taken care of.
I had a ultrasound on my right kidney, liver, aorta and pancreas, due to high liver enzymes. At the time of my ultrasound, the technician had me lay on my left side and scanned the upper back area. My question is would that also show below my sixth rib? I've discovered a lump under what I was told is my 6th rib and not sure if I should have another ultrasound to rule anything out associated with my high liver enzymes. Thank you for your assistance in reviewing my question.
They have never commented on lump in belly. Would a hernia hurt all the time? Because this pain comes and goes. When I get it, it can last for days.
Has tried every GERD med under the sun. Is now on Kapidex, which helps somewhat with the lump in throat. He has already stopped the painkillers/stool softeners given by the hospital. Ultra sound showed a fatty liver. Liver enzyme levels are fine. Not diabetic. He has oily/fatty/bile diarrhea 10+ times per day. He is on a VERY low-fat diet. Doesn't matter what he eats - he is so sick :( No signs of jaundice. If anyone has any ideas, PLEASE throw them out there. He's so sick and in pain.
Last week he sent me to lab to test thyroid and that same day a huge lump appeared on my left arm, near but not on the draw site. The ultrasound showed no thrombosis, but the lump was a swollen portal lymph node. My blood test shows sugar and thyroid are normal but my Protein C level was high. All the abdominal scans and blood work the Dr. Tells me are normal, but I don't thinks It's normal for my arm to keep bruising without injury.
Gall bladder pain is mainly on the right side (very rarely going to left) but its lump/ mucocele is always on the right side.
