Pancreatic cancer has a low five-year survival rate, which in part is due to late recognition of the disease making surgical intervention impossible. Some pancreatic cancers stem from cystic lesions. The expanded use of advanced diagnostic imaging like CT and MRI has led to an increase in incidental and potentially malignant pancreatic cysts. This review presents the newest international guidelines and gives a Danish perspective in order to increase knowledge on how to deal with incidental pancreatic cysts as regards further diagnostic investigation, treatment and follow-up.
