Types of Pancreatic Tumors | MedStar Health

When your imaging results reveal a pancreatic tumor, it’s critically important to determine the type, location, cause, and severity. We also need to determine if it is cancerous. You many have experienced no symptoms, or only mild symptoms that you may have attributed to other conditions. At MedStar Health, our team of highly specialized gastroenterologists, radiologists, surgeons, and oncologists collaborate to get you the right medical care right away.

These tumors may be benign, premalignant, or cancerous. To diagnose your specific condition, we’ve established our pancreatic cyst and surveillance clinic. Here you’ll find a team of specialists with the most extensive technical experience and one of the highest survival outcomes in the country, bringing their collective insight to bear on your care. We offer a full range of current diagnostic procedures and therapies, including:

We are also committed to innovation and investigating future treatments for pancreatic tumors through research. In addition to available treatments, we offer qualifying patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials.
