What kinds of treatment, surgery, or medication did you receive for your pancreatic cyst?

Comment from: dancer 34, 55-64 Male (Caregiver) Published: May 28

My friend has a mass on the pancreas called columnar cell – I can't find anything about it. First, they said it was atypical cells. He had a CT scan, ultrasound, and other tests. The mass is about 3 inches and doctors are recommending surgery.
