    Elevated pancreas lipase levels/Acute pancreatitis But no pain.

    Have had some intermittent sharp pain near the bottom of my sternum, which has gone on for a few years now. Been checked out for it, everything seems fine. Lately I had the feeling of pressure (no pain, but a constant pressure) in my lower back. Went to see my doctor, they did blood work, and found my lipase levels are around 1,000, or over three times the normal level. But I still don't have any serious pain, no jaundice, etc. I did a water diet for about 24 hours, saw a specialist, and am now awaiting further blood test results. Back still feels weird, and my left abdomen does feel a bit...odd today. Not pain exactly, just a tight feeling.

    I have an ultrasound in about a week. Obviously no alcohol until I know more. I'm just wondering if there's anything more I should be doing? Should I be worried about cancer? Thanks for any help.
