Enlarged peri-pancreatic lymph node found. Reason for concern?

Guest Hopeful

Recommended Posts


My mother (71 years old, otherwise healthy) just had an ultrasound because she went to the doctor describing some tenderness in her side that she was concerned about. The ultrasound came back as finding one enlarged peri-pancreatic lymph node. The doctor said they would follow up with another ultra-sound in 3 months.

Is this a sign of pancreatic cancer?

Also, is pancreatic cancer hereditary?

Hi There hopeful,

Thanks for your post on the forums, and sorry to hear that your mum has been having some health issues of late.

I have tried to email you directly, but I think your account has been deactivated unfortunately, which means I cannot get your email details.

As we do not allow personal details to be shared publicly on the forum, I wonder whether you might kindly contact us on the support line, so we can discuss further with you regarding next steps for your mum.

The details are in the signature below.

Kind regards,


Jeni Jones
