Elevated lipase

I'm 23 years old with no real medical history, About a year ago I had issue with pancreatitis, I had severe pain with exercise and elevated lipase, I followed up with a GI and had an endoscopy, ultrasound and hida scan done, all came back negative. Yesterday I had to go to the ED bc I almost passed out at work they said everything was normal but my lipase came back twice the normal value. I plan on following up with my GI doc again but should I be more concerned bc of course I get anxious about pancreatic cancer.
