63 year old Male all blood tests normal except Ca19-9=2314. CT scan=enlarged panc. US=no stones. Can it be Pancreatic cancer?
Very suspicious: Hi. Why did your doc measure a CA 19-9? Yes, the result looks very elevated and suspicious for pancreatic CA. However, I can't imagine a radiologist reading an abdominal CT as "enlarged" pancreas. No mass? I don't want to guess with something so potentially serious.

But if it's just adhensions, then sometimes an operation helps. Talk to your doctor to investigate further ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Further evaluation: Normal size (diameter) of a common bile duct is 1.2 cm or smaller. Ct finding of "prominence" means enlargement or thickening of the duct wall. Either circumstance can be benign (have no relevance to any disease process), or might be caused by an issue that is worth pursuing.
