I got pancreatitis in 2005. I got if from a gallstone getting stuck in the duct. Last year, after having a pancreatic attack, I was talking to my maternal grandmother. She told me some things that scared me. She told me that her mother died from pancreatic cancer. Then she told me that my grandfather also died from pancreatic cancer. He died when he was 40. My grandmother had gallstones and they were taken out and so did my mother. I'm seeing a pattern here on my mother's side of the family. It seems that gallstones, pancreas problems runs in our family. Could my pancreatitis develop into pancreatic cancer?
