Customer reply replied 8 years ago
no she is to go next month she is worried as she read it could be her pancreas
Doctor: khagihara, Doctor replied 8 years ago
If it is inflammation of pancreas, you will have a severe pain and it radiates to the back when she has fatty food like pizza. Pancreas cancer is highly unlikely in her age.
It could be gastritis, gastric ulcer, or duodenal ulcer.

would this give her these symptoms for so long she has always eaten a healthy diet she has been treated for gastritis she doesnt drink or smoke
Doctor: khagihara, Doctor replied 8 years ago
Another possibility is benign gastric tumor because she has appetite. 21 pounds loss could be due to less eating.
Gastric cancer is less likely in her age.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
