Endocrine Cancer

The endocrine system is a network of glands that produce hormones and send them around the body through the blood. There are several glands in the system including the:

  • Pituitary gland (which sits just under the brain)
  • Thyroid gland (which sits in the front of the neck)
  • Pancreas (which sits well above the tummy button in the abdomen)
  • Parathyroid glands (which sit just behind the thyroid gland)
  • Adrenal glands (which lie on top of the kidneys in the abdomen).

Endocrine cancer is cancer that begins in one of these glands. The most common sort of endocrine cancer is thyroid cancer, which begins in the thyroid gland. There are also some types of pancreatic cancer (cancer in the pancreas) that are classified as endocrine tumors.

Some tumors that grow in an endocrine gland are favorable, which means they're not cancerous. For example, most pituitary tumors are favorable. However, benign tumors are often treated in the same way as cancerous tumors.
