Specialists: The splendid aneurysm may not need fixing now but a vascular surgeon should advise and follow you. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate the significance of mild pancreatic duct dilation which also may not need any treatment or investigation at this time. Follow-up may be recommended however.

It depends: The size is small and conservative observation with CT scans every 6 to 12 months is have a kid. 130 needs to be operator usually and then between 20 and 30 it depends your physician will make a decision based on you your age your other medical conditions on your symptoms. The favored treatment is embolization

Aneurysms: A runs in family. Have splenic one calcified. ANS: many kinds are facial so need more details: brain, aorta, renal artery. Any HBP? I specialize in this so happy to do 2nd opinion. Usually leave splenic ones alone. Do family tree on A and discuss with your team.
