This article discusses some research papers that were published in different journals. According to the study "When Is a Cyst a Tumour," conventional wisdom states that 90% of cysts of the pancreas are secondary to pancreotitis and only 10% are neoplastic. In this study, the prevalence of pancreatic cysts was evaluated in patients undergoing axial imaging of the abdomen. According to the study "All Are Normal; But Some Are More Normal," published in the "British Medical Journal," the normal range of serum aminotransferase levels is based on distributions in apparently healthy populations, with two SD above the mean being considered the upper limit of normal.
