Topic: Possibility of misdiagnosis
Hi everyone - my dad came to Seattle to visit a hospital in the area and after two appointments and new CT scan the Drs think the cancer might be pancreatic as opposed to CC. We were very confused since the original biopsy was from the duct and the laparoscopy and previous CT's indicated no visible lesions to the pancreas. The explanation was not that convincing since the evidence was mostly from radiology and there was no biopsy or visible damage. The Dr. said my dad's back pain was mosy likely expressed from pancreatic cancer although he has had it for many years (over 20).
Does anyone know or have experiences with misdiagnosed CC. Since both are adenocarcinomas it is possible it could be the case but I would be very surprised since all indicated it was CC.
