About neuroendocrine tumors

While neuroendocrine accounts for less than one percent of all cancers in the United States, it can cause severe symptoms. The neuroendocrine system in the human body is a complex system of cells with different hormone profiles. These cells may transform from normal to malignant in many different locations throughout the body. Because of this, tumors can be difficult to diagnose. Because the types of tumors and symptoms vary widely, treatment is based on the type of cancer that the specialists on our medical staff identify after a comprehensive evaluation.

The specialists at the Neuroendocrine Cancer Research and Treatment Center use advanced techniques to provide expert care for a variety of neuroendocrine tumors, including:

  • Carcinoid tumors​​
  • Pheochromocytoma
  • Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor
  • Merkel cell carcinoma
  • Medullary thyroid carcinoma
  • Adrenal cancer
  • Small cell carcinoma
  • Large cell carcinoid tumor
