I'm sorry you're feeling worried about this. Let me see if I can help.
First of all, I'd strongly recommend you discuss your concerns with your doctor. He or she is in the best position to help get you on a course to lower your cholesterol and triglyceride numbers and get your blood sugar under better control. Diet, medications, and a support group can all help in that effort.
Regarding the result of your lipase test
, specifically, I'm not sure why a result of 90 would get flagged as high. Usually, the reference range for lipase runs between 10-40 units per liter (U/L) for adults under age 60 and between 18-180 U/L for adults over age 60.
Even if your lipase results are abnormally high, I wouldn't jump right to a conclusion of cancer. Several conditions can cause elevated lipase numbers, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), gallbladder problems, and peptic ulcers -- just to name a few.
Your doctor is really the only person who can help you get an accurate diagnosis, but I hope this response puts your mind at ease a bit.
Best wishes to you!
