Cystadenoma and Cystadenocarcinoma

  • A. H. Cruickshank


Cystadenoma of the pancreas is rare, but an exact diagnosis, based on the microscopic appearances, is important for there are, in fact, two different types of cystadenoma that are distinct from each other and are not different stages of the same tumour. One of the two types remains a benign tumour, while the other is potentially malignant and can be cured only be complete excision.
