Our specialists have a wide range of experience dealing with the commonly found tumours of pituitary, thyroid and adrenal. Within the team there are also experts who routinely deal with much rarer endocrine tumours, including those associated with genetic disease.
These rarer conditions and tumours include:
- Phaeochromocytomas and Paragangliomas
- Familial Paraganglioma Syndromes (e.g. SDHB)
- Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (Type 1 and 2)
- Medullary Thyroid Cancer
- Neuroendocrine Tumours
The treatment of an endocrine tumour will depend on whether it is thought to be cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign), and whether it is thought to be functioning or non-functioning. In most cases endocrine tumours are both benign and non-functioning and can be managed conservatively. However, if an endocrine tumour has the potential to cause harm, full treatment options will be discussed from medical treatment to endocrine surgery.
