A member asked:

What is the usual level of lipase in someone with pancreatic cancer? how elevated does it get?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Poor test for cancer: Lipase is usually not elevated in Cancer arising from the Pancreas...so it is not a test we do to check for Cancer. Lipase and Amylase are tests done to make a diagnosis of Pancreatitis
