How To Treat Pancreatic Cysts Without Surgery?
I want to ask … I have a pancreatic cyst and its size is 9.87 cm … and I also have an ultrasound and CT SCAN … less than 3 months ago I returned to the hospital for examination … the doctor said I have to be operated, but the surgery is not lifted, but the leak is leaked. And the impact of surgery must have complications … if I don’t operate, can we do it another way to treat it? r n
Hello Devita, Thank you for the question.
Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that appear abnormal. Pancreatic cysts are cysts that appear on the organs of the pancreas. The pancreas functions to produce digestive enzymes and the hormone insulin, which functions to help carry blood sugar (glucose) into the tissues / cells of the body. Large cyst size can interfere with pancreatic function. There is no treatment that can overcome the cyst. Handling for cysts is by removing the fluid in the bag if the size of the cyst is large enough. In the case of pancreatic cysts, the procedure performed by a doctor is usually to use an endoscope equipped with ultrasound and a needle to solve the cyst, or the doctor can solve the cyst by inserting a large needle from the skin guided by ultrasonography.
Every medical action certainly has a risk, which can be the risk of the action itself and the risk of anesthesia. These actions have the risk of bleeding, infection, injury to surrounding tissues / organs, while the risk of anesthesia can affect the respiratory system and the heart and blood vessels. Before doing this, the doctor will usually explain the procedure to be performed and then conduct a series of examinations on you to assess your health condition. Knowing your health condition is important to know the risks of surgery and anesthesia on you. The best step is to discuss this procedure with a specialist who will carry out the procedure.
Hopefully this information is useful.
