Is A Cyst In Uncinate Pancreas
Can 6mm pancreatic cyst be malignant? Can it cause symptoms? I have one in uncinate and one in tail. Symptoms of cancer - doc says can't be from cysts

Complicated: There are three possible entities to which you are referring. Mucinous cystadenoma (benign), mucinous cystadenosarcoma (malignant), and intraductal papillary mucinous tumor (benign or malignant). All three have certain appearances on imaging studies.
