Can fat on the pancreas by pancreatitis?

An abdominal ultrasound showed I had fatty spots on my pancreas. Could this be pancreatitis as I've had chronic nausea for about 5 months? What should my doctor do to check this. He is very busy and I asked for a blood test and stool sample and he changed the subject. the radiologist suggested a follow up ultrasound in 3 months. Should I wait this long? He said it could turn into cancer???
