Iam 31 years old female i had us scan for my abdomen everything was normal but pancrease slightly coarse echotexture amlays at normal level explain?

Description

Women
This finding is nonspecific and is of doubtful significance in the setting of a normal amylase (or lipase as is sometimes also obtained). In the absence of a mass, cyst, pancreatic enlargement, or pancreatic duct distention I would not be concerned.

I'm a female ,age 49, with high blood pressure. Is it safe to get a pancreas transplant?

Risk

Open-uri20130227-17055-hv0auh
Pancreas transplantation requires a big operation, and a commitment to lifelong immunosuppresion and monitoring. malignancy and infection are contraindications. Advanced age, obesity, vascular, cardiac or pulmonary disease, and prior abdominal surgeries all impact on surgical risk. Candidacy can only be determined in consultation with an expert. Hypertension is common and not a contraindication

Had. MRI of liver and pancreas because of elevated liver enzymes, healthy female not ill, what may the results be??

Anything

Magnetic_resonance_imaging
Your MRI may be normal or may be abnormal depending on what the findings are. If your liver enzymes are caused by some sort of blockage in the bile pathways, MRI might be able to reveal that. However, if your liver enzymes are caused by a hepatitis or increase fat contents, MRI may be negative.

Where in the body is the pancreas located?

Deep in the belly

Open-uri20130101-10042-r8ljs8
The pancreas is located in the upper abdomen, behind the stomach, and in front of the spine. On the right side, the pancreas is bounded by the duodenum (small intestine), and on the left side it is bounded by the spleen. There are several very large blood vessels that touch the pancreas as well. This challenging anatomy demands that a specialist operate on the pancreas.
