    I've seen papers that indicate that 4cm at diagnosis is the worst size at prognosis.
    On average, 4 cm is the worst case. I'm certain there are exceptions, such as people who avoid doctors until the last possible moment that might have larger tumors.

    But, David, I thought you said larger tumours may be less aggressive.

    March 2016- inoperable due to arteries, also liver mets suspected
    March 2016-January 2017 -Gemzar/Abraxane

    update: The panel of specialists are suspecting that the mass is not due to pancratic cancer and may be pancratic TB, now they have planed endoscopy to check mass for TB and enlarged lymph nodes in abdomen as well. We are really confused at the time, how can EUS biopsy be wrong or there are alot of things going along. Neck lymph node biopsy is still awaited and they will be rechecking the tissue slides from pancreas as well. on the other hand mum is feeling lethargic and weak all the time
