Pancreitis

Were you looking for information about Pancreatitis? Pancreitis is a common misspelling of pancreatitis.
 
Pancreatitis, an inflammation of the pancreas, occurs when certain enzymes become active too early and start "digesting" the pancreas itself. This condition often causes symptoms such as a swollen and tender abdomen (stomach), pain in the upper abdomen, nausea, and fever. Although there are many causes of pancreatitis, the most common causes include gallstones and alcoholism. Possible treatment options for this condition may include certain medications, surgery, and lifestyle changes.
