A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query and a clear picture.

There looks to be magenta colored marks on the left upper abdomen. This may be due to a trauma or hot fomentation.
You have written a history of swollen pancreas. This may be due to pancreatitis and usually seen in the flanks of the abdomen. With this picture you should go to the hospital to ascertain the reason for this presentation, get investigated and treated accordingly.

Hope this helps you.
