Chronic pancreatitis

In contrast to acute pancreatitis the pain of chronic pancreatitis is milder but more persistent. The patient with this problem is often labelled as 'gastritis', 'ulcer' or 'neurotic' because of the indeterminate nature of the pain. Malabsorption and diabetes may result from pancreatitis and weight loss and steatorrhoea become prominent features.

Pain associated with carcinoma of the pancreas is indistinguishable from that of chronic pancreatitis but generally tends to be more severe and more prominent in the back. Use paracetamol or codeine for pain.
