Clinical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Challenges in Mucinous Pancreatic Neoplasms

Paola D. Lobanov*

Mucinous Cystic Pancreatic Neoplasms (MCPN) is uncommon pancreatic tumours that predominantly affect middle-aged women. This illness has a far higher survival rate than pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas. Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms are frequently confused with the malignancies (IPMN). Mucinous Cystic Neoplasms (MCNs) are cysts that are normally benign but can develop into malignancy. MCNs are frequently detected in the pancreas' body or tail. Mucinous neoplasms of the appendix are a heterogeneous category of epithelial neoplasms that frequently cause cystic dilatation of the appendix due to the buildup of gelatinous material, morphologically known as mucoceles.
