What would symptoms be if I had advanced pancreatic cancer in the tail and is it possible to feel the tumor in the LLQ of my back?
Upper GI bleed: Tail of pancreas cancers rarely cause pain. Rather as they grow they obstruct the venous output from the spleen from blood feeding the spleen via the splenic artery. The spleen output is shifted to the vasa brevia of the greater curvature of the stomach where varices are formed and GI bleeding follows. Spread to other sites also noted early ie. liver. ...Read more

I am a healthy woman. I have been having fluctuating headaches for two weeks with no other symptoms (vision, balance, etc). Doctor said to come back if it persists. Chances of brain tumor?
Wouldn't worry yet: Headaches are one of the most common complaints people have and there are many, many reasons for headaches. The vast majority are not due to brain tumors. Also, while many people with brain tumors do have headaches, it is not the most common initial symptom. See your doc again. He/she can decide based on all of your signs/symptoms whether any further investigation is warranted. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Could be anything : I'd be interested to know if this is new or something you had all your life. Could be as simple as a bony protrusion of your skull that has been there from the beginning but any new lump that persists or grows should be evaluated by a physician. Have it checked and best to you. ...Read more

Endo tumor symptoms fluctuate? One day I'll be fine next day hypoK, numbness, chills, back ache, cramping. Undiagnosed but high vip & chromogranin.
VIPoma?: Hi. Does your endo or GI doc think this is a VIPoma? Those are very rare, and at your age would make a genetic syndrome more likely. How high are the VIP and CgA? They need to be several FOLD elevated above the upper limit of normal to suspect VIPoma. Is the diagnosis beyond question? They can be very difficult to localize. I assume no luck with that. Somatostatin analog drugs can help symptoms. ...Read more

34 year-old woman continues to suffer gynecologic pains, especially with bodily movement, after da Vinci surgery for fibroids and endometriosis.....?
Ovarian conservation: Unfortunately this is fairly common; my best guess is it's related to recurrent or ongoing endometriosis. There are many (good) reasons for preserving ovaries when having a hysterectomy, but good data show that if ovaries are conserved women are 6 times more likely (62% vs. 10%) to have recurring symptoms, and 8 times more likely to need additional surgery (31% vs. 4%) than those who have them removed. Adhesive disease is certainly another possibility. ...Read moreSee 14 more doctor answers
