Done ultrasound of pancreas for LUQ pain. Do findings indicate early CP?

I have had a Endoscopic Ultrasound of the Pancreas . To find the cause of the LUQ pain of 18 months+. The result was as follows: Pancreatic parenchymal abnormalities were noted in the entire pancreas. These consisted of hyperechoic strands and hyperechoic foci. Normal caliber main pancreatic duct with intermitently echogenic walls. No pancreas divisum. Two dilated side branches in the body and tail regions(total 4 minor criteria for CP, and per definition according to Rosemont criteria one needs /=5 minor criteria for high probability of CP) Normal gallbladder without sludge . Normal CBD. Timed collection of duodenal secretions was preformed after secretin weight based dose administration. -End of the report- Based on these findings does this indicate a possible early CP or mild CP? Can the progression of it be stopped? Any professional advice about this subject would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
