What are pancreatic cystic lesions?

Pancreatic cysts are fluid-filled sacs on or in the pancreas. The pancreas is a big organ located beneath the stomach that generates hormones and enzymes that aid the digestion process. Typically, pancreatic cysts are discovered during imaging testing for another issue. The most common types of pancreatic cysts are nonneoplastic and neoplastic cysts. (Sources: mayoclinic.org )
