In brief: Benign or malignant

Cystic changes in the head of the pancreas is nonspecific.
Most likely the finding his benign; however, cystic neoplasms do exist. Close follow-up maybe adequate initially. Ultimately it maybe necessary to do a biopsy.

In brief: The best

Approach at this time is a bit of patience.
You have had exams appropriate for the initial evaluation of cystic changes in the pancreas. The MRI report is usually available within 24 hours and should go a long way in sorting out the possibilities. Conjecture now is unlikely to be helpful.
