Calcified Pancreas Treatment
Epigastric pain: Chronic pancreatitis is caused by chronic inflammation of the pancreas. No matter what the cause, the danger lies in the complications that can arise such as pancreatic-pseudo -cyst, decrease exocrine and endocrine function. Eventually, the pancreas will not work at all and you will have to take the enzymes that it usually produces to help in the digestion process. Treat symptoms. Watch etoh.See 1 more doctor answer
Abdominal organ. It is digestive organ: it secretes enzymes into the small bowel which break down food and help its absorption.

I'm suffering frm chronic calcific pancreatititis and diabetes mellitus. I'm 28yrs. What's the future treatment.
Unknown: Many people who develop diabetes as a result of pancreatitis require Insulin for treatment. This is because the beta cells that make Insulin are located in the pancreas, and are injured by pancreatitis. Loss of sufficient beta cells causes type 1 diabetes. It is important to control blood sugars to prevent long term complications of diabetes, such as eye, kidney, nerve, and vascular disease.

Calcific tendonitis measuring 4x1 mm involving the olecranon insertional fibers of tricep tendons. Will this heal? Risks? Advice? Treatment? Thanks
Varies: When a tendon has chronic or multiple of episodes of inflammation and/or injury, calcifications can develop. At 4x1 mm they are extremely small. They don't really heal. One way to look it is they are really just a symptom of of chronically irritated tendon. Treatment involves addressing the cause of the tendinitis.
Rarely a Whipple: Only 10 % of patients with pancreatic head ca are candidates for a wipple. Following this procedure the 2 year survival rate is about 10%. A vaccine is now being developed to be given post surgery to prevent this problem of recurrence.
Can you tell me if there is any effective treatment for pancreatic cancer (pancrease (pancrelipase) head)?
Effective like...: ...Curative? The answer would be surgery if the patient is fortunate enough to discover it early. Even then there is a good chance that it will come back. Chemo and radiation may control it for a while but very seldom for a long time. No cancer is "good to have" but pancreatic cancer is particularly virulent as a rule. Hope this is not about you.
77yrs. CABG-'98, EF-LV 52%, Mild COPD-'12. Treatment/stable. HDL/LDL, BP, SpO2 normal. Carotid doppler-hemdynamically signifc calcific plaque, 75%?
Stroke history?: Hi. I assume you've not had a stroke or TIA; please clarify if you have. That's what you want to prevent. Regardless of your LDL and HDL, you should be on a high dose statin. Regardless of your BP, you should be on an ACE inhibitor. You should be on some anti-platelet agent (e.g., clopidogrel). You should absolutely NOT smoke (I trust you've quit!). Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer
My grandfather 94yrs old having prostate cancer and also has metastasis in pancrease (pancrelipase) and bones. Treatment options?
No treatment: In spite of your grandfathers clinical condition, the pattern of behavior of prostate cancer after 80, for the most part typified by an indolent form of metastasis. One uses drugs like Lupron (leuprolide) to reduce hormones but at his age there are probably little or no hormones secreted. Chemo such as Taxol not utilized. Therefore he should live normal expected time for a 90yo without further intervention
Biopsy: At first, the biopsy should be performed to understand why calcifications are here. And after that treatment.
I was told I have aorta calcification (not sure is it abdomen or?) what is the risk and treatment if available
Is calcification in right apex (lungs) requred treatment or not and how to remove the marks which reflect in x-ray.
Rule out active TB: Calcification in the apical lungs in a TB endemic region is old healed TB until proven otherwise. However active TB needs to be ruled out if you have any symptoms of shortness of breath, unplanned weight loss, bloody cough, chronic cough etc. It can be done with sputum studies or a ct scan. This " feature" cannot be removed by surgery, drugs, diet.. It is akin to a well healed injury.
