Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) Participants
High-risk for Pancreatic Cancer: Patients with 2 or more relatives with pancreatic cancer and a first degree relationship with at least one of the relatives with pancreatic cancer.
Procedure: Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)
Ultrasound scope will be passed through the participant's mouth into their stomach and their pancreas will be evaluated completely by the ultrasound scope. If an abnormality is found in their pancreas, a biopsy may be performed to obtain a diagnosis.
Other Name: ultrasound scope
- Number of Abnormalities Detected by EUS [ Time Frame: Average of 5 years ]To determine whether targeted screening of these high-risk individuals using Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) at regular intervals can detect precancerous pancreas changes or early stage asymptomatic pancreatic cancer.
