    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    My father has a mass on his pancreas and I have been trying to find numbers dictating what the percentage is of masses found being non cancerous. I have found nothing but cancer related information, and I am not ignorant to the fact that it could be cancer, I just like to read about all sides of the issue. If anyone knows, even if it's bleak, please let me know.
