I think that pancreas can't be removed how can you give off insulin if you have no pancreas to give off lipase and enzyme to break it down in order to get to it

Yes, it can.  The removal will cause at least one other problem that will have to be dealt with, diabetes.

JESSIEBUBS, I am no physician but if I were you I would have it checked out. If it truly is your pancreas, it is possible that it will worsen with time. I am not saying it will, but it could become terribly painful and be a real threat to your health. Better safe than sorry! Have your doctor check it out.
