No symtpoms but had EUS due to lipase #'s. Doc said: "few features of chronic pancreatitis but overall very non-specific." Never had pancreatitis b4?

No symtpoms but had EUS due to lipase #'s. Doc said: "few features of chronic pancreatitis but overall very non-specific." Never had pancreatitis b4?

Tests lead to tests: Real question is why lipase ordered in 1st place if no symptoms. All tests have false positives. False positives go up if patient without typical symptoms of disease in question.
