Enlarged pancreas and liver

I would like to know...what causes inflammation of the pancreas?  My mom has been having some symptoms that include diarrhea, upper abdominal pain that radiates to her back between her shoulders to mid back, shortness of breath, enlarged pancreas and liver.  Doctors did an MRI that showed everything was normal...blood tests came out ok other than that her enzymes were slightly elevated...and an ultrasound showed an enlarged pancreas and liver.  As of today they performed another MRI and her pancreas and liver are bigger than they were yesterday.  Doctors want to go in endoscopicaly to see what's causing the problem, but as of now, they have no idea what's causing all of this.  Please help!!!

Thanks!
