Understanding Endocrine Tumors

Glands serve as a control panel for your body. They send hormones through your bloodstream. The chemicals in hormones tell your organs how and when to:

  • Build muscle

Tumors in your glands can make hormones that cause serious illness. This means you'll need care before and after treatment.  

The good news: We can treat endocrine tumors if we find them early.
