Hi there!

Atrophy refers to reduction in the size of the pancreas and could occur in relation to chronic inflammation, endocrine insufficiency etc. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating gastroenterologist.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
