I went to pancreas cancer simposium in San Francisco, it is was just handfull number of survavors ( .
I'm extremely worried because of my symptoms and looking for an answer on the web doesn't help at all. I now start thinking I may have pancreatic cancer.

8 cm is fairly large. Noninvasive MRI/MRCP abdomen can help to further characterize if it is something benign (e.g., serous cystadenoma) or malignant (e.g., mucinous cystadenoma). If indeterminate/suspicious, then you can proceed to invasive endoscopic ultrasound with biopsy. A GI doctor can help with workup and management.
