Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My 40 year old mother is suffering from an unknown disease from the last three months. It may be chronic because she is not feeling well at all. She feels exhausted, dizzy and her digestion is poor. She looks very pale. Her USG report is attached herewith for your reference. Please suggest the diagnosis and treatment plan.

Answered by Dr. Arvind Guru

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have reviewed your attached report (attachment removed to protect patient identity). The report is suggestive of very bad news. I suggest you sit down somewhere before you read the following. The report is suggestive of cancer of the pancreas. It is a very deadly disease. The presence of fluid in the abdomen could mean it has already spread in the body. She will need blood tests and testing of the fluid in the abdomen for cancer cells, and then a CT scan, and then, if possible, a cancer surgery. Follow up with the test reports if you need any more information.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
