Pediatrician 's  Response
Acute or chronic pancreatitis is a painful condition characterised by recurrent abdominal pain. Although it is a grave condition which is hard to treat, it does not usually progress to cancer and you need not worry about this part. In other words, the chance of progressing to pancreatic cancer is very less. I do not find the reports attached as this is not a premium question.
