How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

I am hoping for some help on this. My mother has had a cyst in her pancreas for over a year now. She has been diagnosed with acid reflux as well. She has numerous health issues, but the past year has been the hardest. She has constant mucous in her esophogus, and pain from time to time at her breastbone area. They can't seem to pinpoint the cause of all of this. She is having an endoscopic biopsy in Friday so hopefully they can determine if the cyst is cancer or not. They have done Ercp in the past, multiple CT scans, ultrasounds, etc..but have found nothing except the cyst. What are the chances it is cancerous? Having the same symptoms for over a year seems a bit long to be pancreatic cancer? Just very worried!

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
